The poet tries to feel the depression and the harrowing experiences that other women, her sisters, had to go through and uses her words to resurrect them.
In the darkest corner of this world, did she want to go;
Where no ray of light could ever seep through
Where no wave of sound could ever pass
Away from the reach of all prying eyes!
Inside the cocoon of loneliness, did she want to hide;
Where she need not know if it was day or night
Where she could let go months and years unnoticed
Away from those arms that stretch to embrace her in deceitful hugs!
In the stillness of her soul,did she want to submerge
Where she could shed her tears until her eyes bled
Where she could stay numb until her heart turned cold
Away from them all who could never see her through!
Away from this earth if she could ever go;
She wished go where the sight of stars would not entice her back to life
Where new promises and hopes would not kindle the fire in her again
Where she could hide herself, from the shadows of her own past!
Nay ye woman , Nay! Not any more doth you cry!
Not anymore should you swerve your eyes
Look right into those eyes, that drooled nothing but lust
For you not know, the strength of the fire, you hide behind your stare!
Wake up ye woman wake up!
Not anymore should your mind echo the shrieks of your pain,
For once let them know you cannot be taken for granted,
For you not know, the fury of your ire unleashed!
Nay Ye Woman, Nay! Not any more doth you cry!
For it is for them now, to shed tears of blood!
It is for them , It is for them, to stoop in shame!
