Woman
by Divya Chandran
Bookmark and Share
  Lives grow in her womb
Sheltered by the warmth
Of her maternal blood
Within her, starts
The cycle of birth
Within her, swells
The essence of love
Within her, breathes
The hope of the world

Yet, we laugh raucously
At her demands to be respected
As an individual with a voice
We kill her everyday with
Injustice, violence, abuse
We shun her needs and desires
For she is just a woman
A liability, a curse, an object
To be exploited, to be sold
At the marketplace where
Merciless crowds gather
Leering at her 'vulnerability'
As a woman. Just a woman.

Mock her and prick her
Stomp her spirit, slice her soul
But she is a Woman, impervious
To such mortal trivialities
She will rise and rise she will
Reclaiming her life, her rights
Fighting for what is hers
Breaking barriers, achieving milestones
Empowering the universe
With her indomitable strength
And mystifying influence
In her lies the power to nurture
To transform and to create.
God could be a woman
But I'm convinced that
A woman is God.
