With Rage And Pain - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I am burning with aggressiveness and rage
I feel like helpless bird and confined to steel cage
I dash against its iron wall and strike
Alas! I could have something to spike

Females have suffered since ages
Lived under donation and helplessly managed
I am at pain to know about what is going on
Ladies are still hunted and claimed as prize won

We can understand about the orthodox views
It might have been held permanently by few
Still younger generation tend to bow against pressure
Surrender to parental blackmail and endure

I look upon them as coward
As they lack good conduct and courage to look forward
But why am I saying all this for no reason?
Any body might feel aggressive and question as an individual or person

We have not objected to considering us as sex symbol
We too have not taken seriously the indiscriminate calls
But has taken it to heart when some mad man throws acid!
On face to disfigure her appearance and make almost dead

I have fearlessly presented these matters in the entire women forum
Taken up vigorously to give legal shape with life imprisonment as minimum
How can civilized person resort to such an animal like behavior?
When world has moved ahead and we are still living under fear

I am just symbol for millions like me
Who are suffering cruelty and criminals roam free?
The girl looses not only her feminist asset
But put to shame and undergo pain offered by fate

I have no regret for being female
But would certainly want others to regale
Roam and move freely under no threat
Meet whomever they want and joyfully greet
