Imbalance of Power … by Lynn
“Many stories which are not on paper are written in the bodies and minds of women.“ – Amrita Pritam
in our weakness we find strength
to be a woman is to weep
love hurts because our hearts love deep
and for love’s sake, women lose sleep
to love and nurture is part of our nature
monthly cycle of cramps and blood
hormonal emotions of changing mood
endometriosis, cervical or breast cancer too
even childbearing brings tears of joy and grief
belly stretch marks, skin tags and bags
age and gravity means beauty sags
hot flash sweats feel like dishrag
have women not bourn and mourned enough?
must we also suffer the shame of porn,
abuse, rape, abortion, sexual scorn,
abandoned by lovers in the morn?
godly women clothe themselves in dignity and honor
Linking to dVerse Poets where Punam introduces us to poetry of Amrita Pritam.
