Liberation-

I see you conceal dark circles
And apply your mascara,
I hear you silence your sniffles
With pillow every night,
I see you cover with henna
The bruises on your arms,
But I know, oh mother
Who the knight Is In the battle.

He calls you names like lousy
Scarring you with his venom,
And he claims he does love you
Body and soul, fist and punches,
You take his storm and thunder
Shielding us under the weather,
Love and mercy go hand in hand
And his is just one sided.

He exposes your errors
Shaming you even in public,
And you shrink with every word
Antagonizing your existence,
And your kids are your solace
To us, you are a temple,
You’ve been fighting this battle
We say- it’s time you retire.

He can’t hurt you anymore
For your kids will be your armor,
And the patience you practiced
From your lord will be your reward,
Take one step into the pathway
There’s a whole world beyond this,
It is time to break the shackles
And step into liberation.

The universe raged-

The universe raged-

The waves raged,
Against the shore;
The earth crackled,
To exult it’s force;
Thunder roaring,
At crack of light;
The universe in uproar,
At your demise.

They raged for you-
Your light, dimmed;
Growling fiercely,
In different manners;
I pled to you,
rage against death;
The universe answered,
And raged instead.

The wind howled,
Tree leaves shuddered;
Rain fall splattered,
In angry retort;
The universe begged
For you to fight;
A final glance,
I knew you were gone.
The universe roared…

And she stood-

And she stood-

image

She fought with the masters,
And fought with the kings;
Fought with the lords and
Their pride- at their feet.

She stomped at the market,
And yelled at their heels;
She cried till the cock’s crowing-
Silenced her will.

She planted her feet In-
The soil of the land;
Pretended the taunts and
Their jeers didn’t impact.

She spoke for her daughter,
And fought for her right;
Dressed up like a woman-
She silenced the man,

She stood with dignity,
Addressing the mass;
A woman, a mother-
And she won her right.
