The Successful Women - Whom I Salute! - Poem by Sphoorthi Padmini Rangarajan

Life is not a straight road,
Neither a pleasant abode,
It's topsy - turvy curve make,
The journey of life agreeable.

I encountered brave, bold and beautiful women,
Women of courage, discreet, and power within,
All underwent the rigorous test of life,
Living and digesting it like meek docile wives,
Withstanding the harsh abuses from family and friends,
And ‘MAN' just tagged as a label at their name end.

Who taught them to be brave?
To be bold?
To be confident and overcome the challenges of life by challenging the life?

It is the inner self of these women,
The inner peaceful resting soul, arising in a raised voice,
It is the inner positive force gushing out to face the challenges,
To welcome, face up to, to stand with upright shoulder,
Like a fearless soldier,
Let all the pain be felt, smelt, and breathed
I alone can do it ‘I can do it'.
No more tides of sorrows would wash off my feet,
I ascend higher and higher with every beat,
Lowering my struggle, defeat beneath the seat.

Then, they did not speak,
The world found them unique,
One up with boutique,
Other with parlour,
The third as a successful administrator,
The quest to conquer the world,
Let them to conquer the life.
