Being Her


Women around us, in our societies, in our workplaces and even in our homes get treated in a demeaning manner.

Do we seek to make a better world without giving respect to our ladies ?

Broken flutes orchestrate a perfect symphony.
A tattered shroud masks the sorrows untamed.
Flowerets shiver in the cold sun masked by smoke.
For her conspicuous dreams – is she to be blamed?

Daubing her skin away from the acidic prejudice
and the sightless hunger for the innocence of her kind.
She works in a yard with the prominent in prey 
as the quivering worth of a woman goes to the blind.

With a muted applause from her callous apprentices,
she carries bouquets of smiles covering her sores.
Alive in her own story of a life beyond the tale.
She hides our guiltless shame beneath her toes.

    a bow to your words of excellent and touching expressions. The last line rules the poem and the heart.

    In the first stanza, what do you think of replacing the “ing” verbs for straight present tense (mask…shiver…)? You might compare the sounds.
    “Alive in her own story of a life beyond the tale.”
    Lovely.

    Why toes – not feet?

    I just might have dedicated my recent MMA post to you LOL if not for the thanks I had for the coaches. You’re one of the very few readers I can talk MMA with.

    Only the person concerned knows what pain is given by the hapless and inhuman animal in the guise of a person that inspid person is! May he rot on the pires of hell not only this life but all the lives put together. God may bestow new emotional upsurge of warmth for ever and ever till eternity to the hapless one. When God is with the helpless one that person is liberated for good.
