[H] Hey girl, since when did you learn to… #AtoZChallenge


and greet the guests at your door
beckoning them inside
when just a minute back
you were lying in your bed
crying your eyes out


and leave your bed in the morning
living your everyday routine
when just a night back
you had resolved to yourself to change your ” everyday ” mundane


and devote your entire being
worshipping “him” and the home
when just a day back
you were shown your place
in “his” life and “his” home


and show the world
that all is well in your eutopia
when just a heartbeat back
You died a million deaths
in trying to “smile”, “rise” and “love”

    Tragic and so true for so many young (and older) women. Beautiful poem Sapna.

    That poem really brought home the plight of so many house makers so tellingly.
