Poem against Suppression of Women

Tuesday, December 01, 2015

They said-

Suppress your voice,
Suppress your ideas,
Suppress your dreams,
Suppress your opinions,
Suppress your identity,
Suppress your emotions,
Suppress your urges.

I said-

Then suppressed should have been my breath, the day I was born;
Suppressed should have been my mind, when I was sent for education;
Suppressed should have been my sleep, when I was weaving dreams.

Now that I am full of aspiration, I ain’t gonna be suppressed by your customs.

Opinioned you might be, but weak ain’t I.
