She was weak

She was weak

A Poem by Kajal Sharma

It is the poem emphasising on the male domination in society

She was born
You didn't want a girl at all 
She was 4 and 
Now she looks like a little doll 
She was 10 
Nobody told her about love 
She was 12 
She was learning to light a stove 
She was 15 
You kept her in the walls 
She was 18
In love she falls 
She was 21 
Her choices were not listened 
She was 23 
You gave her to a rich son 
She was 25
 Now in laws had the throne 
She was 26 
 She was already with a kid 
she was 36 
Her boy was now growing splendid 
She was 45 
Her husband complained 
She was 50 
Now a widow crying in pain 
She was 60 
Now her son shouts 
She was 70 
He threw her out 
All life she served everyone 
Her father, her man, her son 
No one shouted but silence did the trick 
But after all she was weak 
If she shouted back that one day 
Her life would have gone a different way

Ugh, I feel you. Truly is a terrible fate unfortunately of many of the women. I do believe giving this poem effort and care could turn it into a masterpiece since it is quite strong. I hope you will consider.

Very deep and true. I feel the frustration in your writing as you try to get your story across. And you did. Nicely done!

Much love,

lovely piece Kajal. Women often forget their own identity in serving people around her and yet the same fail to appreciate her deeds.

Very nicely written. You mostly write about women empowerement

Emotionally described "a girl, a bride, a mother, a old lady". Really touchable thing. It is darkness of world that they are not watching these things. But keep writing on these topics, surely the dark world will listen you, You are precious for this world because you are writing for "a girl, a bride, a mother, a old lady"

Thank you armaan
You have voiced the anguish of many such oppressed women who continue to suffer despite 69 years of our independence. A sad reality. :( A very powerful poem indeed.
