I Am A Woman - Poem by Sairindhree Sen
I am a woman,
I too have a soul;
The soul that seeks to endear –
The world - as a whole.
I too have feelings,
Don’t crush them with your boots;
Why don’t you remember –
My womb held your roots!
I need to share love,
Every moment to survive;
Help me, help me my friend -
Please help me to revive.
I have suffered many sorrows,
And borne many a pain;
How many desires can a heart –
After all– restrain?
You’ve exploited me badly,
Yet I uttered no cry;
I embraced all your flaws instead,
Can you after all deny?
My emotions are kindled,
Inside the cooking pot;
Look – they’re trying to vapour out –
‘cause they’ve been suppressed a lot.
I dust away with my own hands –
My hopes that do arise;
Enduring my servitude instead,
‘cause I’m not that worldly wise.
My fetters of relations insist,
That I must ignore who am I;
My duties come before desires -
I’m to remember until I die.
I love you as my husband,
I nurture you as my son;
Then why am I as a daughter or a wife -
Considered the worthless one? .
I’ll make your dreams come true,
Just have some faith in me;
Don’t thrust me into the dark corner,
Steeped in suffocating agony.
I am also a living being,
Who feels just like you do;
Can’t you hear my heart beats –
The same way as in you?
We’re to compliment each other –
That’s how Nature wants us to be;
To perpetuate the human race,
Through procreation – to posterity.
