The Festering Feminism

The prejudice are we the him and the hers We who set the edicts, the laws and the rules. Upon her have bestowed a chauvinist curse; A life breathing silently amidst the bigotry fools. The endurance of norms to win social respect, The chivalry earned by her oppressed presence. The tag of multi-culturally sensitive andContinue reading “The Festering Feminism”

Universe and Me!

Delusional Illusion

I held on to my imaginationThe words that were never said,Actions were enough to scream its existenceI thought of the colour of love as red, Now that I see it all in serendipityOnly then I can see,I was captivated by a blurred visionThe vision that wore a shining armour mirroring me, The girl stood inContinue reading “Delusional Illusion”

My Muse – My Rhythm, My Blues

A dire dilemmaSurfaced my thoughtsCombined with distressMy words toppledAnd were lost In the depthsOf the UniverseA little pixie with more dustUnknown to my eyeThe bestial let alone the unjust My fingers fell silentHands felt numbMy mindA chamber of thoughtsRan over by a hurricane Putting pen to paperHad never been worstMind, a cistern full of thoughtsEagerlyContinue reading “My Muse – My Rhythm, My Blues”
