Being A Woman

I am a woman,
And I often have to struggle for my rights,
I thought I will get used to it,
But now I am getting tired of it.
I am tired of justifying my needs,
my initiatives and my vision.
I am tired of wondering: 
What are others thinking of me?
How am I being judged by the elderly?
Am I shaming the honor of my family?
How do I get rid of my feelings of insecurity? 
Sometimes I feel I am questioned
just because I am a woman,
not only by the men
but also by my fellow women! 
Then there are also men and women,
who understand me,
But they are tough to find.
There are those 
who are beyond the binary,
they are somewhere in between the spectrum,
I seek their support too,
because they know what it is to be questioned
what it is to justify who you are
But not all understand me,
and I don't understand some of them.
I wish, hope and pray we could all come together,
At least those who are demeaned
could stand together and
become powerful in unity
Maybe then we will win more fights,
Maybe then we will not be as tired,
Maybe then we will change the world
towards peace and harmony,
Maybe then we will make a world
where our children will not be questioned
just because of who they are
Maybe then we be will able to 
bring out love from the religious books
and share it with more and more human beings
Maybe then our differences will be 
to enhance flavors, to bring on colors,
Maybe then will not be judged 
just because we are different
Maybe then being a woman 
will not be a struggle anymore!

You Will Always Have The Option!

There will always be someone questioning you,
There will always be someone troubling you,
But there will always be someone to uphold you,
There will always be someone supporting you!

Who you give your attention to,
that choice will always be yours!
Who you want to engage,
that decision will always be yours!

The rose-bush will always have
the thorn and the flower,
There will always be an option
to reach out for what you desire!

You will always have the freedom
to focus on the light.
You will always have the control
to opt for what is right.

You will always be able to hum a tune,
sad or cheerful, you will have to decide.
You will always be able to influence the environment,
you will have to select the direction of your stride.

There will always be a path to peace,
no matter how many roads lead differently,
the path to peace might be small and elevated,
You will always be able to tread on it gently! 


It’s all about the roots! Our roots don’t pull us down, they enable us to grow farther away to explore the unknown skies! #roots #trees ...
