In search of an identity......
All I see is a mist of darkness,
With nowhere to thread my feet in,
In World where there is absence of kindness,
I see a light of hope so thin.
I can’t go on; my body and my soul are giving in,
There’s no fire in belly to seek reasons for my quest,
With efforts and motivation of my kith and kin,
Now, I go along the path where the birds fly in the air so clean.
Then, I arrive at the gates of my fear ; the scar of defeat is still fresh,
My feet start to disobey my heart; I felt all alone a soul,
And I saw you in the ray of light; my strive afresh,
A voice so familiar like you call.
From here, I won’t look back; the quest of a yard so long,
Fighting the patriarchy ; claiming what’s been denied prolong,
We are, at the brink of being unknown; buried, burned, and killed in the womb,
No one cares or asks who are we to suffer these,
A day will arrive, there will not be palaces but tombs,
And, they will cry and say ” Save us for God’s sake, please! “
