NaPoWriMo (# 6): She

The orthodox dungeons
did let her fly…
she scaled heights…
she rejoiced the freedom…
she failed to see..
the hidden strings!!
And as she tried to soar..
higher …
she choked….
She had forgotten..
Her world was
a man’s world !!
And she was a woman…
A bird with clipped wings!!

A lot of women have been in some or the other way suppressed by men in their life. Many Indian girls have been  stopped from receiving higher education, follow their dreams, speak out their mind. Instead they have been always reminded of small freedoms and told to be thankful for the same. They are still considered less than the male siblings even if they are more brainy. This poem shows the plight of such women.
