! ! ! ! Celebrating Women's Day! ! ! ! !
When God sat down to make a woman
He gave her empathy love and compassion,
By the time he finished with her
He had no more left for the man.
He gave her the ability to be a mother
And nurture and take care of others.
Slowly, on reflecting, it dawned on her
She was being treated like a piece of furniture.
At first she resigned to her fate
Bore the indifference of her progeny and mate.
Slowly she realised she didn’t have to be a victim,
And didn’t have to be at the mercy or everyone’s whims.
She knew it was not going to be an easy battle to be ...
The inhuman heinous crime,
Took lives of so many who had not reached their prime.
One man’s perverted mind and lust
Filled me with horror and disgust.
Is it really true
That the law had no clue?
Despite the parents doubts and fears,
Whose life went out of gear,
