Poetry Bears Light
My ancestral culture
My paternal thought
My vanity as a woman who stands
Equal to man in patriarchy
My glory for a man
Who dares speak
To a sheath ,
My self esteem
My emotions my feelings
My sadness my beauty
My neolithic approaches
Compliant to poetry
I rise from depth of ocean
Don’t search for me in waves
I am a bird with broken wings”….
I am a man with lost desires
I am a woman with distracted hopes
I am a child with paralyzed childhood
I am anarchy , nightmares of war ,
I am slumdog ; earth” s surface,
Garbage are restored here
To fertile million dollar dreams..
I am life , extinct in evolution of
I am mirror of crores..
Poetry says , my enchanted other being
Submerges in life” s vicissitudes..
Like a bride
Poetry bears light
Poetry appeals .
