A Woman Is A

Rating: 3.8


For dogs
A woman is a
Lump of meat
For a lust
A woman is an
Object of desire
For a saint
A woman is a
Mother with new light.

Delightful and meaningful too. Line 5 should read: A woman is an Just for the record, our dog loves my wife as a mother, a companion, yes, even a saint. Maybe a lion would be a better beast of prey.

Your poem is beautiful and it is also touching. Women are complex and beautiful They are a heavenly creation that bring love and kindness to our world. They are timeless diamonds.

Dear Mishra, Can we think as follows? For a lust A woman is a Lump of flesh to rape! For dogs A woman is a Mistress to caress! For a saint A woman is his own Mother to worship! V.K.Kanniappan

your poem definitely needs two readings. when i first read your poem, i thought h'mmm, very mysogonistic. on my 2nd reading i realised you were contrasting what a woman could represent to 3 different existences. very simple & clever! ! ??

The poem written by a poet is the reflection of society, but YOUR POEM does not reflect that, instead your poem lowers a woman’s level/position. LEARN how to appreciate an ordinary woman.

LAST PART: ..............Regards from Sylvia Frances Chan, Dutch Poetess. I cannot call you a poet. Poem Hunter gives you the 221 level, that's not my problem. I am sick of the castes differences in your society. I THOUGHT you were a good Indian Poet, but my thoughts seem to be a greatest fake.

PART TWO: ..........................and that's why WHY in INDIA occurs the most insultations and rapings against women. This poem gives an example for such treatments toward women. And YOU are on the 221 level because of so many of such poems? IF YOU are not gay, you will never create/write such a poem like this. Many poets from your own country do not dare to write this comment, but I believe in God and people of both sexes ought to be treated as equal subjects.
