I’m here. I scream, I shout.
No one, nobody hears me out.
I am shunned. Pushed. Stamped, & Throttled,
No one knows cares. I’m cobbled…

Topic(s) of this poem: women
This is dedicated to all the oppressed women, fraught with struggles and longing to be treated as a human being; yet have no one to support or comfort, but left to fend for themselves.

I’m a piece of worthless nude! Beaten, molded, bruised, I curl. Unfurl me, a plea. I mourn; to be born A butterfly – or die. Beautifully written about the oppression of women, their struggles, their fear, their sens of being unwanted. you bring in passion in your writings. Afterall poetry is the expression of our own soul. God bless you.

Women in India have suffered a lot due to discrimination. But times are changing. The girl child movement is gaining popularity. In Mumbai, the modern woman move about - bold and beautiful - free like the butterflies! So don't worry dear! You will never be shunned, pushed, stamped or throttled! Not in this age! ! !
