A cry and plea from women all over the world.

# I stepped out that day,

  A beautiful face I had,

  A welcoming sunny day it was.

I see no sun today,

  neither I see myself,

  For the world has now corroded my face, my life!!!

# I held his hand to never leave,

  A new life ahead

  My wedding day it was indeed.

  Dreams shattered,

  I cry day and night,

  As he left deep scars within & ruined my life.

# I was walking back home,

being positive about life.

I saw them running into me,

I cried and cried,

pain here and pain there,

A crowded world but no one could hear.

#  I saw a dream

where I touched the peak.

But I was packed and sealed,

I was labelled and unveiled.

I was touched all around,

and was sold in pound.

# We all raise a voice,

  and the voice is crimped.

  We all stand up,

  and then we are wrecked down.

  All we hoped is just for a moonlight,

  but life showed mercy on none of our kind.

That was awesome. Finally I found a poem that the feminist side of me truly appreciates. It was way too good. I mean I know how brute the world be to a woman. You enclosed all those wrong doings in a a few lines and that is really commendable. It kinda reminds me of the one I wrote, "Let her live". Its on the same lines. But definitely yours was too good. Really pained a part of me... Amazing job

Thanks for such wonderful comment..
Its a pity that today women can be described as "strong" only in few written lines... The fact is we stand nowhere

True. I can understand the fact that you wanna state as I too come from the same part of the world as you. But its we who need to make ourselves strong if we wanna stand somewhere good.

Yes, absolutely...
Not just men in the world, also women need a change in their thinking.
It was really good to know your views. Would love to read your writings...
