Life is beautiful, you told me.
It’s a virtue, to be born as a woman.
Every divine feminine energy is within me.
That Shakti, I do possess.
Then why don’t I have the power to eradicate the demons?
Who tear me apart, burn to ashes and blame me for their every fault.
You said, woman personifies Lakshmi.
Do I have the basic needs-
To live life with dignity?
You said, Saraswati resides in my soul
Why then, the darkness of ignorance
Keeps engulfing our clan?
Every single day, life is a challenge.
Fight from womb to tomb-
Fight to be born, live and for every right.
In your every word I find a lie
Like the false slogans of our time.
Fingers crossed, hoping they all come true.
