Menstrual........ - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

It is this cycle where
We are really different
From other mammals,
Makes a woman complete,
But in it she is down
And feel weeker,
Yet make her woman hood
Complete in all senses,
We wonder why there
Are medicines to stop
The cycle, even temporarily,
But yet she is prepared
Through the ages to face it
Human life is yet so different
In man and woman
Just by the presence
Of Menstrual cycle,
And she feels almost let down,
When the cycle stops,
But yet with some relief,
this yet another game
Of nature on human beings,
It is not menstual,
But really a womanstrual.
