Allegiance With Silence

Allegiance With Silence

2 mins

Your allegiance is with silence

When I opened my eyes to this world,

Started understanding how each cog in the machine works,

I was told your allegiance is with silence,

You are the cog who is shunned and sent behind the scenes.

Your opinion isn't of importance I was told,

Time and time again I was reminded of the shackles I was bonded with.

I was silent when I was being shunned 'cause my allegiance was with silence.

I was silent when I was bonded cause my allegiance was with silence.

Each moment of silence gave me wounds of treachery, betrayal of my soul.

I cried my eyes out seeing my soul oozing out through these wounds,

Then came the day where I lay lifeless waiting for someone to resuscitate me.

I gave the death blow to myself by waiting for someone to revive me,

The biggest wound was inflicted by me I realised.

Before anyone shunned me, I shunned myself,

Before anyone bonded me, I bonded myself,

Before Fighting every norm that defined me, I defined myself as weak and incapable.

I was my own hostage.

A hostage who had nothing of her own,

A hostage with a realisation,

Tables had turned and the time had come to avenge each wound,

Then,I rose like a phoenix from the

Ashes of my previous life and healed the wounds of silence,

For now was a time to take a flight which knew no bounds,

A flight which wasn't bothered by terrains nor my the obstacles in its way,

Which only knew to fly, whose allegiance was with freedom.

I made those realise who shunned me that

I too was the cog due to which the wheels turn.

P.S.Rise and shine women because you too are the cog

Due to which the wheels turn and make them realise your worth.
