Banned from living


They tied me down with different names

And used my body to ravage and lure

They snatched my life away from me

And on ‘those’ days called me impure

They banned my right to make a choice

And curbed my spirit with some new excuse

They put me on a pedestal and prayed to me

In their hearts, did they know it was a ruse?

    1. When we feel strongly about something the words start taking form on their own. Looking around me and finding women treated like a piece of flesh makes my heart break and blood boil.
