Amma By Maanasa Murugesh


Art by: Maanasa Murugesh

In the confines of your womb

I felt safe from all danger lurking

Protected from man's hunger

Waiting to tear me apart ruthlessly

My hope last forever naught

Under the scrutiny of blood thirsty men

A tingle of undying fright and trouble

Under the eyes wandering over my body

Sending shudders down my spine

At threat the sanctity of my body

I so wish I could

Curl myself like a child

In your womb yet again

In peace, safe and sound

Now can I not expect?

The eternal protection

For the men are here too

To shatter me into a million fragments

A dewy blossom yearning to unfurl

Its young tender petals

Only to be torn and crushed later

Tormented for the sin

Of being born female.


A tribute to #Nirbhaya #Asifa
