She And That Blade Of Grass

In the rush of life, make sure you do not uproot the girl within you..your dreams and your emotions need attention!

She and that blade of grass!

That thin and slender blade of grass

Peeping between two mighty rocks

Standing tall making space for itself

It teased and mocked at her

As if ridiculing her existence

Making her feel rotten from inside

So she went ahead and crushed it mercilessly with her feet

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

Few days later, it shamelessly propped up again

Like her dreams!

Irritated to the core this time

She plucked it from its very root

And yes, that fragile yet robust grass

Died its death at last!

She smiled with victory and cried in empathy

Staring at the fallen, slain and deceased grass

Green and fresh yet lying crushed and dead

Like that girl in her who had become defunct and dead

Alive and kicking in a battle of duties and dreams

She had succeeded in her roles

And lost herself !
