From The Shadow To The Light

This poem describes what goes on in a woman's mind when she resolves to break the shackles and fly free.

She stepped out of the shadows, into the light

Tentative steps, guided only by will and might

Scared and nervous and yet with a steely resolve

She vowed to be strong, to adapt and to evolve.

They had shackled her, bound her in servitude

Till all she felt was pain, a perpetual lassitude

Until one day, her spirit kicked back, it fought

She rose, broke open the ties and she sought.

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

Today she stood on the threshold of a new life

But if only she could shed fear, fight her strife

The forbidden beckoned as liberty danced free

Her bolstered spirit stepped out, joined the melee
