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!
For Linda’s SoCs
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “new/old.” Use either or both of the words “new and old” any way you’d like. Bonus points for starting and ending with either one. Have fun!
Old traditions die as modernity takes over
Old technology fades as new ones erase their entity
Old structures demolished as sky scrapers change the landscape
Old healthy food habits replaced by new instant junk
Old sustainable living dislodged to the new concept of use and throw
Old repository of minimalistic approach to life conquered by the new materialistic culture
Why can’t we blend the best of the old and new to create balanced habitat?
