You decide what can be done with my body, says the poet, but you forget that despite all of that, the ownership of this body is mine, not yours.
You take my body
and write on it.
your to-do lists.
On my body you inscribe
what I must wear,
what I must not do,
what I must say.
in so many ways
and in so many places
–in the temples and the churches,
in the hospitals, and schools and battlefields,
in homes and in the courts of law.
Your world is my doll house
where you strip me naked
and dress me up.
And yet my body
never pleases you,
so you take a scalpel to it,
or a pen
and you rip it apart
in your newspapers and television,
in your facebook and instagram feeds;
round and round
like Chinese whispers
but you forget this simple thing
–it is my body.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
