Dear amazing women,
here is my humble opinion.
We are all beautiful and strong,
But we got each other wrong.
Pretended and lived like we don’t belong,
We may not by blood,
But, don’t we by heart?
We pulled each other down,
by saying things bad about the girl beautiful and brown.
Calling her fatso or skinny,
why it would not suit- the bikini.
Of how she is not ideal,
and when hit why she must not squeal.
Why be a villain to your own?
While I understand feminism,
why blame men we don’t stand up for each other?
We pull each other down when we need help the most.
A good man was raised by a fine lady,
women not standing up for women is crazy!
We call each other bitch, I ask, what is wrong with being one?
They just stood up for themselves because they had none.
It’s never too late to change,
It will feel strange, but you will manage.
Compassion, empathy, and kindness,
That’s what we need in the world full of madness.
Let’s be kind to one another,
And build greater generation with each other.
That’s one hell of a beautiful poem, Ramya. I miss reading you. Your writes are always so positive and inspiring. Keep them coming (please!!).
I keep saying that we women need to stand up for each other and fight for what is ours and for each other. But you summed it up better 🙂
You said it! I can’t understand why women have to be so mean to each other? Maybe it is just that we have inflated egos or too much of a competitive spirit? Whatever it is, I have observed this more in a professional environment. Beautiful poetry Ramya, good to have you back!
Coming from a woman this one’s great and hard hitting.
That’s something every woman ought to do – stand up for one another, support one another. For who else do we have, if not each other?
Beautifully done, Ramya!
