A voice so heard yet suppressed
Times have changed,
Eras have flown,
History was created and destroyed,
Yet, where do we stand, me and my folk?
And yes, they do sing of our beauty and charm!
Stereotyped for long – not just by the society but by ourselves!
Objectified at times!
Worshipped, yet preyed upon!
An era of simplicity demanded us at home.
An era of industrialization demanded us at work.
An era of modernity demanded us to be open and sexual.
And we believed what they wanted us to believe.
Love is demanded but not always given!
Defame and shame -related only to us!
For some we are just flesh and bone.
And for some we lack the brain.
To choose not and fall in love,
That’s not my choice -never my choice!
Pre-decided are they -my age and my soul-mate!
Pre-decided are they - to fit in and love, no matter what!
To survive through their lust is my purpose.
To live and give love is what we are created for.
Times have changed; eras have flown,
Yet, here we stand- Me, a woman and my folk!
