SHE

By Darshana Mehta

Squinting through 

The veil of traditions,

She saw

What the world 

Never wanted

Her to see.

 

A realm 

Full of

Possibilities, 

Waiting for her

If only she

Breaks free.

 

Him first,

They always told her

To think. 

Kept her aches aside

Found happiness

In his glee.

 

Never thought

That she 

Was someone.

Could be

More than a wife or 

A mother of three.

 

But now

That she knows

She won't

Let herself

Bend

Her knee. 

 

She wants

To be 

Someone,

And not 

Just 

Somebody's,

 

To break through 

The chains 

Of false

Emotions and customs

And be what she

Wants to be.

  • So I read a lot of the poems here and in almost all of them women are portrayed as sun, ocean and what not. You, however don’t. And I love that. There’s an honesty in your poem that I love.
