Beneath the wisdom tree she sits,

Amidst bright leaves and flowers;

Telling the world what she would do,

If it was within her powers.

She’d civilize the unruly one,

Be it friend or foe;

And drive them away from their trackless paths,

Who think of her so low.

With a strong nerve she would fight all those,

Who think she’s weak, in their mind;

And strike down every single crook,

Who tries to keep her confined.

She would wage a war against those,

Who keep assassinating her character;

Mind you! When she comes to fighting her cause,

She won’t need any barrister.

She would bravely face her sinners,

Even if they attempt to hide behind the loop-holed law;

For when she fights for justice,

The whole Universe witnesses in awe.

She would soothe the oppressed ones,

And battle each doubting head;

She vows to never shrink from pain,

But keep bravely rising instead.

I’m a woman, she says,

A woman, who has given birth to this world;

And you think of me as weak,

Is your vision so blurred?

The creator himself gave me the power to create,

She exclaimed! I’ve amassed all powers within me;

Your soul, your body & your strength which you use to oppress her,

Was given to you by a woman! Your mother, who is also referred to as “She”.

She finally asks the silent world,

Why does it take a crime to wake?

If it ever happens with one of yours,

Would you ever take?

What caused her cheeks to pale;

Why did she cease to speak;

What made her fingers clenched;

Did you ever seek?

It’s time you identify the suffering ones,

Go talk to them and get them out;

Such a lifeless planet our Earth would be,

Without a woman! Do you even doubt?
