(032) Sanitary Napkins - Poem by premji premji

From today onwards,
My Doctor told,
you have to undergo radiations.
We don't have any other option,
Mother told, but...
Your periods will be
stopped for ever...
Her words impinged my soul
like thunderbolts...
Why God? Why do you
torment me like this?
Why do you want to rip
my femininity?
Why do you want to
chip away motherhood,
my only mode of salvation,
from me?
Kill me please...
for that is far better...

Tears roll down
from eyes while going through
your diary, my little sister.
The pain your bear
is still alive as words

Sad, we live in a nation
where the poor womenfolk
below the poverty-line
use MUD insted of
sanitary napkins!

    'The pain you bear is still alive as words'...
    I 100% agree with Poet Sandra Flower
    This the gamut of word orchestration.

    these words should have come from a women
    but to my wonder a man understands a woman's unsaid problems
    i wonder how u could relate to that so easily
