voices her opinion loud, against her dwarfed rights
turns deaf to societal charades, with a whispered sigh
gives wings to her crumpled dreams, to reach the pinnacle
fights a daily battle against unseen and unsaid rules
frees her imprisoned longings, with her head held high
adorns a resilient avatar, with her tenacious spirit
proudly wears her tiara, despite the many scars.
Her life is a collage of challenges, a different set each time.
She expertly sews the many patches of her life
into a beautiful quilt,
signed with the motifs of her victories!
All she only wants is,
freedom to celebrate herself, to be who she is!!
Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing women here!
आज, कल की यादों से लड़ रही थी मैं,
आने वाले कल की परेशानियों को भी ,आज जी रही थी
कल और कल के इस कश्मकश में,
मै आज को जीना ही भूल गयी .
Today, I fought with yesterday’s memories ,
and am living tomorrow’s worries also.
In the tussle between yesterday and tomorrow,
I forgot to live today.
The tussle between the thoughts
wreak havoc to my sanity
the positives and negatives jostle
vie, to dominate each other
mire the mind in a muddled mess.
Bound within the confines of home
the daily chores defeat the weary body
frustrations overpower the confused mind
it succumbs to a sulking mood
banging the door shut, to all .
The eventide ray from the horizon peeps in
bringing with it an enlightened reflection
merging the vestige of dark thoughts with the weaning shadows
the benign glow of the amethyst horizon
embraces the soul in a serene grace of gratitude .
Confined to home due to the lock down, my ramblings found words to vent out my frustrations. All fine, just waiting for this dark cloud to blow away without much harm.
Stay safe , Take care!
