A POEM BY ME AND A TRIBUTE To THE WOMEN WHO CREATED HISTORY

Celebrating Woman power.

She is the true symbol of love and dedication.
Her role as a mother gets universal appreciation. 
She is the epitome of Shakti- the power.
Her independence and security is the need of the hour. 
She is also a daughter, a sister and a wife.
With sheer determination, she overcomes all the obstacles in her life. 
Her greatest strength is her endurance to pain.
With each faltering step, she rises again.
An ideal woman is her family's strength,
To protect its honor, she will go to any length.
She has succeeded in reaching the sky.
Carved a niche for herself in this world, holding her head high. 

Happy Women's Day.

Good morning friends,

Happy International Women’s Day. πŸŒΉπŸŒΉπŸŒΉβ€β€β€β€πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•β˜Ίβ˜Ίβ˜Ίβ™₯️β™₯️. Being a woman is never easy. Protecting ourselves from sexual predators, abusive marriage, jealous boyfriends, ex-boyfriends who turn into stalkers and blackmailers, spurned Romeos who throw acids on the women whom they claim to love, female infanticide and so on. Besides, in a typical patriarchal society, a woman’s freedom is completely restricted. She has no rights to perform the last rites of her dear one just because she’s a female. She’s considered impure, filthy when she menstruates and so treated like an untouchable, disgusting creature. But it’s ok to bleed on the First Night of her marriage which proves her chastity and that she had been a virgin. What kind of double standards is this?

Gone are the days when a man filed for a divorce, the woman was blamed for the failed marriage and when she filed for divorce, she was held responsible for the failed marriage. Her own family would advise her to bear everything silently and not try to wreck her family. Why? Why? Why? Now, men are getting paid back in their own coin. They are finding it difficult to find a bride. She’s financially independent and strong enough to raise her children on her own. Let’s stop talking about gender discrimination which isn’t limited to India, as the Western countries might think. It’s a universal problem and existed in the developed nations like the US, UK as well.

Let’s take a look at these ladies who have made womanhood proud. I am proud of them and equally proud to be a woman.

SAROJINI NAIDU

VARIOUS FACES OF LIFE

A POEM BY ME.

Photo by Oleksandr Pidvalnyi on Pexels.com
It doesn't matter to me whetherΒ 
I am either right or wrong.Β 
Life is like a flowing river.Β 
and a beautiful song.Β 

It's the biggest temple of learning.
We learn from our experience. 
A good reputation is our real earning. 
And the greatest wealth is our intelligence. 

Life is like a rainbow. 
It's rich and vibrant in various colors of nature. 
We have multifaceted personalities to show. 
Some are ignorant, some are naive, some are mature. 

Learn to cherish every moment, 
We may not get another chance to live. 
Let's not worry about our past or future but focus on the present. 
Love and kindness are those assets; the more you receive, the more you give. 

Life is meaningless and empty without family and friends to share our joy. 
Their presence gives us comfort and solace. 
I feel that life is a puppet show and I am merely a toy. 
Our lives are like movies, scripted by God's Divine Grace.

BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS.

A POEM BY ME.

My dreams may shatter. 
But my spirit is still intact. 
It's the urge to live that matters. 
Resilience is the much-needed tact. 

My dreams may not materialize 
But it will not stop me from trying my best. 
It's my soul that I emphasize. 
To deal with the hardships of life like a test.

My dreams inspire me 
To keep working towards my goal. 
I have the whole world to see. 
Ignorance is the best way to counter the troll.

My dreams keep the burning flame within. 
I have to cross the hurdles in my way. 
This flame is the fuel for my determination to win. 
Success is the greatest reward for me any day. 

Failure is never the end of the road. 
Rejection is my fraternal twin. 
Everyone has problems cartload. 
Sulking and committing suicide is a sin. 

It takes time for a seed to grow 
Into a lovely plant and finally a tree. 
I am sure to succeed one day, I know. 
And so will you all, you see.

POETIC THURSDAYS (56)

REAL PAIN : A POEM BY ME.

Photo by Engin Akyurt on Pexels.com
I thought my grief was the greatest until 
I saw a father visiting his only child's grave. 
A widow of a newlywed martyred soldier trying to be brave. 
It hurts when your children desert you when you are old. 
And poverty-stricken people on the streets suffering from hunger and cold. 

Who can measure the pain of a child with a learning disability? 
He has to face the humiliation from his parents and his school's hostility. 
Being naive is considered to be an act of stupidity. 
Why do people tend to forget civility? 

I shed tears when I read about the children in the orphanage. 
Getting rejected by your parents hurts more than losing them at an early age. 
Physical pain is nothing compared to the mental agony. 
Why should we spew out venom from our mouths rather than living in peace and harmony? 

Hatching conspiracy to create obstacles in the path of progress of the other. 
Is the worst thing humans can do to one another. 
Discouraging words, pessimism, ego and jealousy. 
Inflict the worst kind of pain and torture to leave behind a hateful legacy. 

We should realize that there are people suffering a fate worse than ours. 
Their painful screams are often unheard : for years, months, weeks, days, or hours. 
Problems are just like the hurdles in a race. 
Let's be more sportive by putting on a brave face. 

Let's use our common sense, to avoid judging others by their physical appearance. 
Let's not hurt anyone by passing comments, advice, or unnecessary interference. 
Life is too short to hold a grudge against anyone.
Let's bury the hatchet to be friends, and together we shall have fun.

WORLD AIDS AWARENESS DAY : A POEM BY ME.

Photo by Klaus Nielsen on Pexels.com
Social stigma attached to HIV / AIDS. 

The most malignant disease prevalent in the Human Society, 
Is not cancer, or AIDS but cheap human mentality. 
A person infected with HIV ( AIDS) deserves to be treated with love, respect, and care. 
Because life for him or her, has been really unfair. 


AIDS is just a disease, there's no need to shun. 
Or make the patient's life miserable by denying him the rights to have fun. 
A patient of AIDS isn't an untouchable. 
Anyone could be its next victim, it's probable. 

Why is there a social stigma attached to AIDS? 
What about those shameless people who face Income Tax raids? 
Why aren't people ashamed of taking or offering bribes? 
Or the politicians discriminating  the citizens on the basis of religions, castes and tribes? 

Why is an HIV patient considered an outcast? 
How long will this tyrannical attitude and ignorance last? 
We aren't ashamed of telling lies or boast. 
But why do we despise the victims of AIDS the most? 

No one in this world is disease free. 
Some have physical ailments while some are afflicted mentally. 
We are constantly living under the threat of some or other kind of virus. 
The world is meant for everyone and not just us. 

Avoid corrupt people like plague. 
They are not to be believed. Their statements are a bunch of lies and vague. 
Jealousy is the worst form of human acidity. 
Allowing it to thrive is an act of stupidity. 


Anger and hatred are like cancers, they spread everywhere and damage humanity. 
Wipe them out before they develop into insanity. 
Our vices are our real enemies and a major cause of concern. 
Let's show kindness and compassion to the patients of AIDS and in the process learn. 

That love and friendship have no bar. 
Discrimination is too far. 
To prove we care for each other. 
We are the children of the same mother          
 (Earth).

RISE AND SHINE : AN INSPIRATIONAL POEM BY ME.

Photo by Ricardo Esquivel on Pexels.com
I am afraid I have run short of words. 
To express how I feel. 
I am like a caged bird, 
Wanting to fly, but experiencing Achilles Heel. 

I keep on telling my silly heart. 
You can't please everyone. 
Don't be naive and try to be smart. 
For you are inferior to none. 

Yet, somehow I go back to being slack. 
And the fire within me fizzles out. 
How can I think of going back? 
And allow myself to be overtaken by self-doubt? 
 
It's not the time to rest or immerse in self-pity. 
It's time to rise like a Phoenix. 
And now I am back again to do my duty. 
And won't let my pathetic mind play funny tricks. 

There are many obstacles in this journey called life. 
Each one is meant to make you strong. 
It's smooth sailing for some people, while it's full of strife. 
But it sure wouldn't last for long. 


Fear of failure is the greatest impediment to success.
Don't be afraid to fail. 
Don't grant negativity and pessimism any access. 
To your mind but continue to sail. 

The winds of fortune will definitely blow our way. 
We must not lose sight of our goals and aims. 
We will be successful one day. 
Despite our detractors playing unfair games.

IT’S YOUR CHOICE : AN INSPIRATIONAL POEM BY ME.

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com
To stay or to leave, 
To be happy or to grieve. 
To complain or to smile. 
To keep working or relax for a while. 

To be magnanimous or a miser. 
To be foolish or wiser. 
To keep arguing or pretend to lose. 
Think twice before you choose. 

To be contented or to be greedy. 
To be selfish or help the needy. 
To be humble or to bask in your glory. 
Life has its way of scripting a story. 

To keep boasting or let your actions speak. 
To be strong mentally or to become weak. 
To learn from your past mistakes or to keep mourning over the lost opportunity. 
To hanker after money and power at the cost of your dignity. 

To stay within the comfort zone or prepared to take a risk. 
To be a couch potato or be active and brisk. 
To refuse to part with redundant ideas or be flexible with changing times. 
To earn money honestly or resort to the world of crimes. 

To be grumpy or jovial. 
To embrace acceptance or prefer denial. 
It's your life and your choice. 
To live in peace and harmony or make a noise. 

No matter what you may do. 
Listen to your conscience, as it will never mislead you. 
After all, it's just a matter of choice. 
Use your common sense than just depending on the words of advice.

MY HEART : AN INSPIRATIONAL POEM BY Me.

Photo by Brett Sayles on Pexels.com
My heart is a one-way lane. 
Some people entered only to give me pain. 
Some people taught me how to live. 
Don't forget the betrayal but learn to forgive. 

Some people wanted to see me fail. 
Their words of discouragement were to no avail. 
I learned to keep working from an ant.
And try to avoid believing that you can't. 

My heart is like a luxurious inn. 
To provide happiness to all the guests residing within. 
It has air conditioning of love and a heater of joy. 
To make all the guests comfortable, a girl or a boy. 


My heart is like a big house, open to all. 
You are welcome to reside as long as you can;  it's your call. 
There's no rent to live in my heart. 
Let's be kind and appreciative of each other for a start. 


My heart is like an exotic beach with the sea of affection and dunes of loyalty for the sand. 
I don't have many conditions or demands. 
Except for a kind request , 
Control your temper for it's a troublesome pest. 


It's better to be silent than speak hurtful words. 
Let the positive thoughts fly from the prison of your mind like free birds.
I welcome you all to this journey of life. 
Where we are living precariously on the edge of a knife. 


My heart is like a bridge to help you reach the land of positivity from the ocean of despair. 
It's strong and sturdy, made of love and care. 
And I would keep praying until my last breath. 
Dear God! May we live in peace and Harmony until our death.
