Woman's Womb

Why woman is forced upon to bear a child?
Is it because she is so gracious and mild?
Is that whole universe is so proud of her stature?
Is she paramount factor that she cares not for her future?

If I go for any dictionary word in her praise, I won’t
It will be dropp of water from sea to be collected on boat
What world will be rewarding to honor her womb?
She has many secrets to reveal and to explode as bomb

How much dishonor she retains to face the world?
How much disregard we may with attitude so cold?
Does she ever complain anybody what suffering she is passing into?
I am afraid there is no answer to be exactly correct or true

How is that she is called upon to sacrifice first
Why man is never blamed and stands always last?
He has always considered her as instrument for lust
Why not he is forced to undergo punishment just?

Preference for womanhood to protect man from embarrassment
Insults to be borne all the times and face crisis any moment
Rapprochement with a child with status of single mother
Who is to be blamed, take note or sincerely bother?

Mother in all forms are adorable and needs proper care
No one should violate her modesty or simply dare
Birth place for all mankind till the world lasts
Performing bad acts under the disguise or mast

World may wake up to the hard facts and reality
They may see the reason behind with its futility
It is restoration of respect for mother’s wishes
May prefer death to life before she ends up or finishes

Even God has chosen to be a child of mother
She has been glorified all the times but not father
We may go to the extent of granting her sacred place
No one on earth can unset her or replace

Is there any compulsion to go for anguish and enduring pain?
Is it not futile attempt to malign her or to slain?
We have done enough to push her to gallows
Promises made with good words never to follow

It will be human tragedy if we fail to accord holy status
All achievements will bear no mark and considered as minus
We can’t be failed for the simple reason of cowardice act
What have we to offer honestly and unreasonably to react?

It will be great tribute to all mothers who have suffered
Undergone all treacherous treatment and not single word uttered
I feel pinch of salt at heart and wish to bow head
Few good lines from my side in honor to be read

    'Mother in all forms are adorable and needs proper care

    Birth place for all mankind till the world lasts

    Very often we forget that our mother is also a woman. While thinking about a woman let the image of mother come in the heart. Well written thesis of womanhood.. Thanks for sharing..

    A woman's womb is her only strength to claim universal womanhood first-that they are creators of men and not men.Men are only catalysts meant to be for the making of a woman.Nothing more.

    Woman and the womb which bears the race who inhabit this planet deserve every line in this careful tribute which outlines the immensity of the task. Thank you friend.

    Even God had to take birth through a mother's womb, like Lord Krishna. It is a gift of God that a woman has to bear the child. The Mother is the greatest among all the creations, mankind, animals, birds or any other creatures in the world. A good write.

    great honor to a Woman's womb, Hasmukh. Just as mother earth gives life to all forms and keep all forms in balance...without complaints. Women give life to human with love...just as mother earth give life to all forms but is often violated and or mistreated, like women. The creation story has placed man as the dominant power over all life form so, not until the present 'male' god is replaced or presented genderless, there will be little or no respect for the womb of mother earth or the womb of women. Nevertheless, mothers, lovers, and wives love our men just the same because we are the givers of life.

    Hello Hasmukh!
    I was surprised to see that you have about (439) poems. That means you are a proliferous poet. Frankly, I am not able to read all of them at the moment. I just start with 'Woman's womb'. In its theme it is well chosen for 'Woman is half a society' as we say in Tunisia.
    Here I would like to comment upon both the 'good' and the 'bad' points of your poem. First it is good to start your poem with the four opening questions:

    'Why woman is forced upon to bear a child? '
    'Is it because she is so gracious and mild? '
    'Is that whole universe is so proud of her stature? '
    'Is she paramount factor that she cares not for her future? '

    That is great to draw the attention of the Reader / Listener to your problematicity that will be solved throughout the intervening verses but please pay attention to the grammaticality of:

    'Why woman is forced upon to bear a child? '

    Please pay attention to the inversion rule in questioning. Many poets mis-interpret the poetic license which is another matter.
    In general your poem is of great value but there is the problem of 'Directness'. In poetry one should avoid that otherwise his / her 'poem' will lose its essence.
    Example:

    'No one should violate her modesty or simply dare'

    That looks like a legal order:

    'No driver should park here or dare'

    You see there is no difference between your verse and this prohibition sign!
    There are many other verses that should be re-formulated.
    Finally, this is but an opinion with all my respect and encouragement.

    a grandeur womb of every woman.....as the pleasure assure in
    every coitus, then life would be very special....without such feeling
    womb will be nothing to stay...for a woman womb, man can't
    fathom His greatness.....

    Cheer up dear poet my bow of happiness be with you. God bless....
    a Star and 10 +++++
