Then and Now…

When I was small
I was a property, 
I wasn't allowed to dream, 
I wasn't allowed to roam,
I wasn't allowed to be me, 
I wasn't allowed to learn

But it changed 
I started standing for myself,
I started seeing dreams,
I started seeing the world, 
I started recognizing  myself,
I started seeing a future,
I started learning

This was my dream 
But this dream shattered 20 years later  

Now I am an adult 
I am a property again,
I am not allowed to dream again,
I am not allowed to roam again,
I am not allowed to be free again, 
I am not allowed to be me again,
I am not allowed to learn again,
My world is restricted under this 3 layers of cloth again.

  1. Dear Mannat
    You have encased the plight of the whole women community in your words…πŸ‘πŸ‘
    Waiting for the second part of this creation of yours…. where there is an open limitless sky of freedom, dreams of success and happiness.
    Lots of love…
    All the best…
