Born as a Girl

a poem by Pink Poet

Born as a girl, my life was about to start.
Or as the circumstances say, it was about to change.

Born with the head bowed, they say;
But I stand for my dignity, my pride.

Born as a girl, I was told to be down to earth.
Or they just want me to be stuck to the ground.

Born to be bound in the boundaries, they say;
But they never knew that sky was always my point of view.

Born as a girl, hands always stretched forth to ask, they say.
But they never knew that these are the same hands that build generations.

Born as a girl, I was told to be just a ‘Girl’;
To think twice before I speak; look good for the crowd.

All they never knew was, I had galaxies in my soul.
That I can’t be held between four walls of their rules.

Circularity of Life

a poem by Vidya Kudva

Moving from a big city
Escaping the banality
The bellicosity and brutality
Wanted some normality
Tired of perpendicularity
Settled in rurality.
Missing my connectivity
Party activity and affinity;
Met a personality
Who offered nuptiality.
Hoping for sincerity,
Security and stability.
Thrown by reality,
Demanding conformity
He shun eccentricity.
Needing congeniality
Agreed with serenity
Realized with fatuity,
He mistook equanimity
For timidity and docility
People lacking density
Attacked my credibility.
Surprised by depravity
Immorality and disparity,
When faced with duplicity
Shrugged off tranquility
Fought off with tenacity
Oh, where is humanity!
Losing my sanity
Took me an eternity
Claimed my identity.
Staked a solidarity
With sisters in totality
Bond with toxicity
Or Hanging in adversity
We live with audacity
Enjoying spontaneity
Work for prosperity
Demand equality.
