I see an angel disguised as a simple girl,
Whose heart is as pure as a shining pearl,
She glides like a graceful gentle dove,
In her soul flows the river of unconditional love.
She is a caged, tormented, beautiful bird,
Yet she weaves love in her every word,
She remains to be your most faithful ally,
All she desires is to fly free in the sky.
Yet her sky is filled with dark grey clouds,
That rain down on her earth, judgmental crowds,
Her every move is observed and mocked,
At every step, her self-esteem is rocked.
Benevolently, she turns deadly venom into an elixir of life,
While her desires get slaughtered under the society’s knife,
She’s a warm blooming paradise on this cold earth,
Yet she’s in a constant war to justify her worth.
She walks on broken glass, a thousand miles,
She hides her sufferings behind fake smiles,
Her silence overhauls her painful screams,
As subliminally she sacrifices all her dreams.
She dreams of a land of paradise,
Where for her heart she’ll be recognized,
She yearns to change this patriarchal world,
But you reduce her existence to a silly little girl.
In your eyes, she is a mere prize to be won,
A mindless doll with whom you can have fun,
But there is more to her than you think
She’s an endless ocean of love, in her, you may sink.
She isn’t a weak, powerless, fragile flower
In any career, she can demonstrate her
Compassionately motivate her & abolish her fears,
You can be the one, who wipes her silent tears.
Please her true worth, you try to understand
Support her by always extending a helping hand;
& don’t you, degrade her, amongst your social clan
For she’s your creator, who gives birth to a man.
Note: This one goes out to all the lovely females who are the secret architects of our happiness. We barely fathom the amount of invisible effort that females put in to sustain the joy in our lives. Along with my words, my heart and soul bows in respect to females who have touched my life with kindness.
