The Two Sisters - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

The Two Sisters

The lack of G-Force means
Lesser weight, attraction
Therefore, useless, worthless
Can float in the air; easier.

I know of two sisters
That differ in parents,
As well as calendar;
And place of the birth.

Born in two continents
Centuries between them
Still were two sisters
For having common aim.

Each of two was female
And either has rebelled
Patriarchal system
To seek for freedom…

Therefore two, are sisters
Yes, they are two sisters!

Neither was innocent
But what is innocence?

Who offers right scale?
The senate? Religion?

The older was Muslim
And younger, Christian!

And the two were sinners
Barred from privileges.

I love these two rebels…

Rabeeh of the Balkh
That was sealed, killed in bath
And the Mary Shelly
That lived life of Frankenstein.
