Woman - Poem by Saheb Mohapatra

How nice it would be being a woman,
With smiles soothing sad hearts,
With tears burning greed and selfishness,
With pain abolishing deceitfulness,
With love shielding from impediments,
Being a missionary, the Almighty has sent.

So, why is she ignored?
Leading a life of dark hours
Why none welcomes her birth?
The angel of beauty and suavity,
Owning ever the crown of society.

    i have a friend
    Down Under
    a great poet he
    but like a gal he looks
    so he has turned into a woman
    not only in looks
    but replaces them
    with men
    you know what i mean

    Women need to sit down and actually think about how important they are to this world, they need to realize we are meant to be at the helm. Unfortunately with the constant badgering and put down of men who think themselves God's only gift we find ourselves trailing long behind. That is changing and more and more women are taking their places at the helm and now is the time to continually grow. We who bring forth the children in this world are the most important vessels alive on this earth. Without women there is no world, without women there will be no men and it is women who have the last word and who will make the crucial decision as to whether to bring forth children or not. This might not be easy to swallow but all it takes is for women to realize their importance and to think strategically as to how to rid this planet of the brutes that walk this earth leaving us with only those who want peace and who are a part of bringing forth beings that can enhance and love each other recognizing that all human beings are worthy...Excellent poem...It is those who nourish that ought to rule. This world is a mess and why, think about who rules now…We need great change, the heavy hand, brutality, war mongers and sadistic brutes…will never bring peace to this world…Excellent poem.....

    This is wonderful... Saheb....... not because it is a praise on women and that I am a woman, but because it has much poetic beauty and depth of thought considering it has from a teenager with little experience of life! Bravo! A 10 (Report)Reply
