what a world a woman lives in…if she dares to be herself..if she wants to be herself,if she tries not to travel the roads a woman should not…if she wants to soar high…if she wants to be alone..if she wants to drink,if she wants to smoke,if she wants to keep the company of men she likes or leave the company of men she could not afford to hurt on a lie…
its so small..the world she is forced to live in…that’s a big lesson I learn..and yet I unlearn..
only to learn again,through the grey of some wise people..through the eyes of a myopic few mortals..
a woman has to either play by their rules or be ready to live with the stigma of being a whore..
a whore for the so big crime of being herself..applause!!!,and how did she do that?all the men must be thinking,talking and dissecting..is not it?
when a woman suddenly feels bigger than her life,when she knows she can no more contain her happiness in her ‘limits’…what happens?
her wings are clipped,she HAS TO part with a portion of herself…how else can she survive in this world..wont the moral force maul her with their big moral claws?
would it not be a matter of shame if she trespassed the lines that were drawn for her…without her knowing it of course?
would it not appall the generations of sanctity, loyalty,layers of lies that are built around her existence to continually enforce on her the rules…the duties,the spaces she can walk on..and the closed doors she should not knock on?
I totally agree with the world….I mean common,when all the bloody rules are made for her..why should she dare think of re-inventing them,why should she think of writing some for her own,just for her own…why should she think of turning the wheels and disturbing the balance that society has planned out?
I am with the world on this…,cos is it not stupidity?
so what if society has different notions of a thing and a woman has different ones!!
There is no concept of relative goodness when it comes to society..its either good,either bad ,or a whore’s sorry tale!!
I pity my daughter who would be born into this world….so much has already been planned for her,so many rules already waiting to eat on her existence when she transitions from a girl to a woman….so many choices waiting for her…not so that she can select,but so that she HAS TO embrace them!!
Infinite spaces,limited free breaths.But Bravo!!:)
