She Disobeyed Secretly - Poem by Sahil SharifdinEnglish

Don't,don't, she always heard.
She felt like a caged bird.
Possessive brothers and Hitler dad
Made her life very sad.
Narrow-minded was her spouse,
Who jailed her inside house.
Wear this and talk that.
No TV, cosmetics and hat.
Return early but go very late.
You are safe inside the gate.
Talk less and lower your gaze.
"Best woman is she who obeys ".
She felt like a bought slave.
For,she was not very brave.
When dad grew old,bros married,
When her spouse was buried,
When she was at last free,
She smiled and told me,
" Though, Iobeyed publicly.
I disobeyed secretly
I disobeyed secretly..."

    Narrow-minded was her spouse,
    Who jailed her inside house.
    Wear this and talk that.
    No TV, cosmetics and hat.
    Return early but go very late. but a bride is not a slave........ we have to raise our voices against such slavery especially in India. thank u dear poet. tony
