ode to women

A Poem by sakshi arora

god said i am his most beautiful child
so he sent me to take care of my sweet Adam.
but gave me a message
"you are the power of this earth 
you are more then just Adam's Eve
you are a part of the magic which sets the world right and creates a beautiful sight "
i arrived on earth, i told Adam,
"god sent me for you to make this world a beautiful boon".
but my biggest mistake, i did not profess the message of God.
since then, Adam treats me
as i am only meant for his treats.
i asked God, "if i am the power,
why have i become so powerless?
that i am nothing more than Adam's woman
why am i not only known as EVE?
if i am the power,
why am i possessed with terror
of Adam's lust
that has broken me into mere pieces flesh and dust.
Adam's apple leaves no opportunity to curb my voice
i only know how i grapple to make my choice.
i have questioned god million times
but still waiting for his reply
i am still waiting to be just eve
still waiting to be set free
still waiting for you, Adam
Just understand me  and my dreams 
they are harmless to be alive
don't suffocate them 
to death.
still waiting in grief is this Eve.

A sad truth that many men feel women are beneath them and not equal to them. This is a good message and very heartfelt from one woman to another :)

Thank you kindly. You are welcome.
questions that i`m sure are asked daily by some one

Thank u so much
The desperation and pain is powerful in your well written words.. How unfortunate to ever feel as though you are not an equal. Relationships need balance - both people need respect to grow and thrive in a relationship. I like the way you set the last line apart from the verse - it gave it so much power - it is haunting.

Thank u :)
everyone should have power and dreams...and relationships need to be shared...there is no boss, there is no person to dominate...there needs to be balance---Eve was meant to share not to be ruled.

love this.

Thank u sir
for me a woman is a strong figure around whom everything moves...god was right in your words when he said you are more than just Adam's Eve.. like everyone else he was sure of her powers but as you said Eve just let her down all the way n today she is fighting to move out of that shell... girls r always the real super human that god has created n i really enjoyed reading your work ....simple words always touches the heart n the real meaning behind them...thanks for the share

This is a powerful write coming from a strong spirit. Indeed we were not created out of Adam's foot so he could step on us, but out of his rib, the closest place to heart..
