Suppressed with chains of bondage
a subdued life she lead for centuries
bearing the cruelty inflicted on her
swallowing the endless flowing tears,
smiles and happiness an elusive dream
resigned to her fate, in silence!
With the eons of time
unravelling the layers of confinement
she emerged slowly out of her cocoon
to feel the warmth of the sunshine
equipped with an armour of education
with confident strides she marches along
taking on the baton, guiding many lost souls
adapting and embracing myriad roles with aplomb.
Now, when dark grey clouds loom over her,
she fights back with resilience
charting her own path to victory.
She is the woman of today!
A very Happy Women’s Day to all you beautiful women from across the globe ❤ !
