How Special SHE is!

How Special SHE Is

How Special SHE Is

Strangled with society’s traditional beliefs,

She wanted to take a sigh of relief

She had always herself to fit into the portrayed image of that Good girl

For once She wanted to give dancing a whirl

While she was told NOT to bother her feet much,

She learnt, those ghungroos aren’t meant for girls from respected families

While she wanted to go out and relax a bit;

Guided by the baseless societal principles, her dream she had to quit

Bringing her up as an ‘ideal daughter’ was the key

For her to be splendid in all respects she was expected to be

To adjust with the obstinate society and just listen

To maneuver herself, wherever the situation was driven

Yes, she did attend a co-ed school to study

Ironically, she was ALLOWED to have Only GIRLS as her buddies

She was told to stay away from boys & available for a presumed advantage

Well read, yet scared, she safeguarded her family’s respect from any damage

As she matured in that tender age of ten

to voice her struggle, she finally held her pen

She wrote of her crying heart and happy face

She scribbled of her achievements and soul’s disgrace

Her pen was taken away; the diary was no-where to be found

For the first time SHE listened to nobody but her voice profound

Today, SHE listens to nobody but herself

Yet preserves the customary family values intact without hampering herself

She is an individualist yet caring, beautiful hearty young woman

Supple at heart, strong persona, immense strength exemplify this superhuman

She doesn’t need wings, but opportunities to touch the sky

To speak what she wants, achieve what she aspires by

She crusaded herself through many storms that came her way

She stood strong keeping her fears at bay

It’s time we realize her worth and clear haze from our mind

And say “YOU are special to this mankind!!”
