A Trophy Wife - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Life is not easy in all walks of life
Some are fortunate whereas for others it’s a tough ride
Life of a woman always goes like tides
Sea may look calm inside but on shore it wage fight.

A fight with self and a fight for survival with pride
this reminds metamorphosis from a caterpillar to a butterfly
though it is a painful process, still worthwhile
It depicts courage, courage to remain upright.

To make this journey from darkness to dawn, resizable
an inner courage is required, unmatched and unbreakable
Especially when one is economically dependent
and emotionally challenged by society to surrender.

It is difficult to stand for self-dignity,
face the filth flung by the community,
a woman becomes merely a “puppet” of guide
with strings pulling her from all sides.

Follow your dreams and make big strides
No compromises, no adjustments, no sufferings or injustices
Don’t put your aspirations on a back burner, for peaceful happy married life,
You are vigorous women not just a “Trophy Wife”.

    Life is indeed a journey from darkness to dawn. Such a heartfelt poem on women and the struggles they endure. Simply awesome. From the pen of a male, it becomes all the more significant. How the poet has gone into the depths of a woman's life is truly admirable.10 10 10 all the way. (Report) Reply
