I’m A Woman, My Voice Forever Unheard, Undefined, Unvalued!

As a woman, I am the one who is burdened with everything, I am the one who takes care of everyone's needs. Then why am I never heard?

Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence and violence against women and may be triggering for survivors.

I am God’s biggest gift to the mankind,

But still, why is my existence and significance undefined,

I am the one, who starts taking responsibilities since birth,

But still, I have to plea for respect, dignity and human worth,

I am the one, who sacrifices my own dreams and identity,

But still, why am I always a victim of obscenity,

I am the one, who formulates a family with love and serenity,

Never miss real stories from India's women.

But still, why people only see me with pity and a nonentity,

I am the one, who carries a life in my womb risking my own physique,

But still, when it comes to power I am still considered weak,

I am the one, who manages offices and homes at the same time,

But still, a man’s contribution is considered prominent and prime,

I am the one, who serves the family till the last breath,

But still, every day I have to go through an eternal living death.
