She wanted to conquer the mountains, when
she was asked to cook a meal.
The smell of smoke and spoilt food choked her.
She wanted to scream her head off, when
her voice was not supposed to be heard beyond four walls.
Her whole tiresome day always came to an end
listening to blames and accusations.
She saw herself reflected in the light of helplessness
Her dreams were burnt down,
in the fire of fulfilling her duties as a “woman”
That night she dreamt of fragrance and happiness
which she could never feel in reality.
She chose not to open her eyes ever after, and that was what she wished for……….an escape from reality to eternity.
