A sad day:)

’twas a day, warm and bright

And young was the night

When she came and walked

She heard whispers and talks.

No candles, no celebrations, no tears

No shrieks, nothing.

Silence, absolute silence. And it continued for a very long time.

Lovely! She heard someone say

Wonderful! Said another,

In her mind silence shattered into pieces

But only in her mind.

It was a place where she existed;

Not in any universe or a country or in an opulent house. No.

She chose to exist where she mattered.

A tiny individual in a mysterious galaxy who neither lived in it nor outside it.

She lived someplace hidden, a place which even the secret service of patriarchy couldn’t fathom!

From her place she could See,

The lies people wear and the deceptive words their tongue speaks,

Together they said, “happy birthday to you”

And she knew, it was not the place to be.
