Don’t Tell Me….


woman

 

Don’t tell me I am a daughter, lakshmi of the house,

When you think I am a burden

 

Don’t tell me I am a sister- the epitome of love

When I am killed in the name of Honor

 

Don’t tell me I am your love of life

When I am raped and abused

 

Don’t tell me I am a wife-the equal partner

When I am treated like a slave

 

 

Don’t tell me I am a mother— i am your GOD

When I am thrown in an elderly home by children

 

I am

Not a property to possess

Not honor of the family to be saved

Not a reproducing machine to procreate 

 

Tell Me …. 

 

Even if you are single,

Even if you are a widow

Even if you are a sex worker

Even if you are a Baanjh

Even if you are a lesbian

Even if you are disabled

 

TELL ME….

 

WE LOVE FOR WHAT YOU ARE

 

A HUMAN, A WOMAN

    जिसके लिए सवाल है , उसी के उत्तर है , मेरे नही ..

    नशा सा छाया है ,
    मेरे पास सिर्फ़ काया है,

    तेरे सवाल तो गहरे हैं,
    मेरे पास घने अंधेरे है,

    घमंड का बवंडर है,
    उसकी registry मेरे under है ,

    एक घमंड तोडो..गे ,
    मैं दूसरा ले आउगा,

    तुम रिश्ते बदलते रहना ,
    सवाल करते रहना ,

    कौन आएगा ?
    क्या कोई मुझे बदल पाएगा ?

    A successful woman doesn’t beg for love she earns it. People don’t love you for what you are, people love you for what you can do for them, for love after all is a product of evolution.

      Aruna, here I am not begging for love for one , but claiming my right that I am a person not a relationship in this patriarchal society, so dont love and respect me as i am reproducing a machine, or for my roles but cause i am a PERSON
