On the occasion of Mother’s Day …

She bore my weight 

Carried me through 

Nurtured me 

Like petals for Bud. 
For every struggle I went through 

Every stumble I faced,

She stood by me, never complaining. 

Even my angst she would bear. 

And that pretty Iris 

Who cried joy when I uttered,

“Mother”

That divine lady she is.

I was born as pride

But you veiled me with shame.

I was born to be bold

But you clothed me with culture.

I was born as a beacon

But you deemed my birth dark.
I was meant to shine

But you shadowed my light.

I was meant to speak

But you muffled my voice.

I was meant to walk ahead

But you pulled me back.
I am the goddess of might

But you saw me as a weakness.

And on my birth

As I cried,

Through the cries of another woman

You eluded the woman that I was.

Every time I look at you, 

I promise to smile at you 

And be the reason for your smile. 

Every time I hold you, 

I promise to hold onto it 

For as long as I can. 

Every time I kiss you 

I promise to caress you with care.

I promise to be your home 

I promise to love you long 

And I promise to stand by you 

Through nights and dawns.

Stay

Once-I-Had-Her-Hand-Quote

I pressed my shirt

And buckled my shoe,

Tidied my tie

All set to sway.

She smiled at me,

Her lips beaming as she said,

“Stay”

 

I pushed open the door

Held the keys to my car

In glorified fury,

I hastened away.

She held my hand,

Braced my shoulders and said,

“Stay with me”

 

I hushed my departure this time,

As quiet as it might seem.

Just like the moonlight sweeps into morning

And the twilight darkens to night.

But she held me close,

Her eyes entreating,

“Stay close to me”

She said.

 

But now once time

Had played its tricks,

And taken her too far,

I wish I had stayed.

For I stand

In the lonely Christmas lanes,

Staring at her window pane.

We pen down letters

Craft words

But how often do we express our emotions?

 

We muse

We dream big

But how often do we think reality?

 

We talk of likeness

Express hatred

But how often do we show love?

 

We take birth

And then we die

But how often do we live our lives?

“Not everybody deserves a second chance…especially not love. It’s like watching a movie all over again when you already know it’s ending.”

When you walked into my life

it felt like a dream

only to be crushed in ruins

when you left it astir.

But now when the wounds have healed,

now over is the battle within,

There echoes just one voice,

of forgiveness but forbidden chances for thee.

The one that can change

For you I am a girl

A woman with no worth.

For you I am a server

The bearer of your wrath.

Since the days of Ramayana and Mahabharata

My dignity has been nothing

But man’s desires and yearning.

O’ man of narrow minds,

Don’t forget that you were born

Born from a lady’s womb.

Dare to elude the pain she had undergone

Her sacrifices for you alone.

 Remember Goddess Durga

The epitome of strength.

And that you pray to Lakshmi

The provider of your wealth.

The little knowledge; not wisdom you have

Is nothing but Saraswati’s grace.

Yet you never saw me

With a respectful eye.

And yet you never thought

About the dreams of my life.

But now I have a voice

A voice to retaliate.

And I stand against injustice.

With my head held high:

‘I am a woman

The symbol of tolerance.

I am a woman

The giver of life.

The embodiment of strength

Fortitude and  placidness.

I am a woman

One of the goddesses’ kind.

The one who can change

I am that power and might.’
