(In)Human?

Her life isn’t easy,

But then who’s is.

She weeps most days,

Most nights she cries herself to sleep.

A broken heart and a broken bone.

No money no place to go.

A future as dark as Satan’s home

A mind God abandoned long ago.

And her soul?

She left it for scavengers and crows.

You think she’s human

I disagree with you.

Lost Motherhood

Image result for shutterstock image for hospital bed

Unfinished cup of coffee on the table

Unfinished romance, unfinished love

Unfinished words and unfinished sentences

Unfinished dreams on a hospital bed

Half awake on an unfinished night.

Unfinished sweater that she stopped knitting

Because of an unfinished womb of an unfinished mother

All those things that could never make it.
Unfinished

Consent

She said no.

Then why?

If she said no, then why did he do it?

What made him think that consent is given by saying no.

We as a country are known for our religious and moral values, for our rich heritage, diverse cultures, and traditions that we still follow, well at least the negative ones we do follow. A country where on one hand women have been worshipped as Goddesses and even the Earth has been referred as “Mother Earth” and on the other hand they have and are still being killed even before they could crawl out of their mother’s womb. Where domestic violence is the story of every domestic household. Where women are sexually assaulted, molested and harassed. Where if a girl wears short skirts or comes home late then she’s of questionable character. But what about the man who parties till 3 in the morning and comes home at 5 in an inebriated state. Does anyone ever question his character?

But maybe that’s okay because he is a “Man”, isn’t it?

If a woman is sexually assaulted by a man or a group of men, then her character is questioned not only in our courts but also in our society. Even if she gets justice by our judicial system after being harassed by police and the accused’s solicitor, the society still holds her responsible for everything. They’ll still raise questions as to why was the girl out so late at night but they’ll never question him.

Women are still being forced by their own families and our law enforcement bodies to stay quiet on such matters. Many women are faced with such terrible dilemma.

Our law enforcement bodies have terribly failed at protecting the dignity of women. 

Okay, I won’t complain about equality. I won’t become a feminist and raise slogans against you. I won’t go out for candle march. I won’t even ask you to protect me. I’m staying away from you so can you please do the same. All I’m asking you is to keep your eyes off me. Just that much. NOTHING ELSE. 

Our values and the way our society interprets them never fails to astonish me. We as a society have failed at teaching our boys the basic lesson, i.e. to respect women. Let’s focus on the upbringing of our boys for a change. Let’s question them when they come home late. Let’s teach them the rules and regulations of the society we live in. Let’s  start teaching them that when a woman says NO, she’s not giving her consent. Let’s teach them the basic and the most important thing, the difference between a YES and  NO.

Dilemma

P.S. I”m preparing for an important test that is on 8th of October. So I might not be able to go through your posts or reply to your comments. But I’ll try to spare some time to write everyday. Please be patient with me. I’ll get back to you as soon as practicable.

I’m standing on the edge for you

I’m rolling all my dice for you

Will you be the sun for me?

Lift me up and let me know I’m loved

3 Day Quote Challenge Day 2

I’m combining two posts again. The quote challenge and the daily prompt silence. So Puneet, thanks again for nominating me for this challenge.
I’m mentioning two quotes here. And I love both of them.

Audrey Hepburn, ” Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you’ve found it, you should stick to it.”

Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

Bullfighting can be an art
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art

Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men,
although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.

When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
Or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
Jesus
Socrates
Caesar
García Lorca.

I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me.

Charles Bukowski

Thank You 

Am I dreaming?  No certainly not. A lot of you must have already been through the feeling of getting your first 100 followers. I’m celebrating right now. I’ve watched these numbers grow so closely, holding my heart in my hand every time someone followed me. It really meant a lot. From 1 to 2 to 3 and then it never stopped and now it’s 100 followers.

Thank you so much. And believe me I mean every single word of it. Thanks to all of you who have made this possible and thank you so much for showing so much love. For liking my posts and telling me where I need improvement. I’m blessed and in this moment I feel like an Olympic winner. ( okay may be I’m over reacting, but so what?) 

Thank you for being on this journey with me and I hope this journey never ends. 

So bloggers, keep writing and keep spreading love.
