Being Woman

Being Woman

2 mins

Conceived and nurtured in a womb,

From a fist-size ball of flesh to an actual form

She came into being like any other tiny newborn


Her shrill cries echoed in the air,

And there came the judgement, in hushed voices, in open sneers


It's a girl, it's a girl, it's a girl they whispered

Poor thing, one more to struggle in this dark wide world


Time did its part & flew like the wind

She grew to learn only beauty can be her currency to win


That it's not okay if she doesn't fit the system

And nobody cares until she voiced only harmless opinions


Nobody explained to her that why she should love pink

But everybody told her to be careful of strangers who wink


At thirteen, when a new phase in her life arrived

And painted her red with pain, fear and strife


Many warned her not to venture far in the night

But they had no answer when she got abducted in broad daylight


Confused, weak and docile, they made her

Incapable of knowing herself or her potential


Struggling to understand the hypocrite world

She still kindled hope to learn its way and find home


She kept attempting to fly and touch the sky

Only to fall and realize that true liberation is found in trying to rise


That it's okay if the mask of beauty wears off

That it's okay if nobody validates or understand her thoughts


That it's okay to age gracefully and truly live

That it's okay to find or keep seeking her inner self


That she was not born to prove anything to anyone

She was born to be the knight of her own and rescue herself


That she was born to try and make errors

To rewrite her fate, find new roads to traverse


To learn the lesson that nobody can give her power,

And that if she wants it, she’ll have to take it


It took time but she eventually learnt that she was of value and was worthwhile

That she held the power to create one of her own kind


That only she can pull apart her body

And accommodate another life for nine long months


That questioning the holiness of her blood was foolish

That even though this is a man’s world, she held the thunder within to rule it


That if there’s anything she should be in life,

Then she should be proud to bleed, she should be proud of being born a woman.
