“The Rose”

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
An endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
And you its only seed.
It’s the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It’s the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance.
It’s the one who won’t be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dyin’
That never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun’s love
In the spring becomes the rose.

The Deadly Game of Power!

Your greed of dominion has seized my existence

Credit:quotepixel.com

Credit:quotepixel.com

It was sown in your hearts long ago by power

It chained your ability to reason in shackles

It shot an arrow in the heart of your emotions

Devastation overflew since then, going boundless

The fire breathing dragons caged are on the loose

All the dominoes of life have started drifting…

Tumbling down the freedom and ‘being’ of mankind

It doesn’t take long to capture pawns after all!

But it takes only one piece to turn the tables

To checkmate, to win back the lost glory of life!

And i will stand tall till my last breath to survive

To execute the move which topples your vicious plans

Mountains of pursuit turn to dust, hopeless tumbling around

But till i carry flag of our lost honor, there’ s still a chance!

Take seeds of brotherhood from me, plant in depths of your heart

Water with faith, strength, harmony, plow fields with humanity

Wait in patience for fields to bloom, to light your heart with unity

Let’s leave this game here, and hug each other my dear friend!

There’s nothing lost in the end,we both won match of co-existence!

Dilemma of Today’s Woman – Objectification and Respect!

” My understanding of women goes only as far as the pleasures ” –  Micheal Caine

In this evolving era, change has brought a huge difference to a world of yesterday, and a world of today. No one has escaped it. Time have revised and re-developed everything. Civilizations have been developed, although the question of mankind being civilized or not still remains. There’s still a long way to go, but mankind of today is revived and much more improvised than that of yesterday.

 ” I think every woman does want to be objectified…I think it’s healthy” – Cameron Diaz 

Where does a woman stand in the times of today?A million dollar question….Being a woman myself, i feel the perspectives about women haven’t changed at all. First, she is considered an object – object of craving, vulgarity, possession, seduction, pleasure, attraction, allure, entertainment and flirting. She is merely a commodity with little or no dignity whatsoever. Unfortunately she isn’t considered for anything more than the three letter world. She is considered charming, sexy, ravishing, pretty, figurine, barbie or a prostitute and that is all what defines her worth and talent. This sexual objectification of woman has led her to nowhere in today’s world.Leonardo da vinci portrayed her as Mona Lisa. Shakespeare’s character Romeo only fell for Juliet after being drowned by her apparent beauty.She is made beautiful inside out, but that only is not her hallmark.

She is used on media as a marketing strategy in commercials, without whom not even a shaving gel gets sold in the market.She is portrayed as hot in chick flicks, else vamp, or otherwise naive, weak and submissive.She is just there to jazz it up, add some spice, and gain attention of the opposite sex, if not so then just to cry bucketfuls and otherwise cruel. She is always a simpleton, innocent, brainless and spineless yet attractive girl who is too dependent on men and for whom independence is the name of another constellation .She is never projected as a strong, intelligent, confident, smart lady who can change the shape of the world.Hence, the result is too many women wanting to become cute princesses, or a hot shot, and men also idealize such women.So much going down the gutter there….

A world dominated by men who think similar often forgets that woman is respectable. She deserves respect because she is an equal, a beautiful creation of God who sent her in this world to play an important role.She is as human as men.She a financial support to her family in daily lives as well as in times of trouble and she handles the finances in parallel to her jobs of raising family, a homemaker whom you refer to even if you can’t find a pair of socks, a mother who is the sole womb to bear humanity and also sole lap to raise it afterwards.She is an authority on emotions, care, and behavior as she is the one who raises a generation of men and imparts them with these ethics and morals.Then why is it that she is raising a society of deaf and dumb yet starring and drooling men?

The problem lies within herself.She is responsible for her self-objectification. No women ever objects such ill projection. None ever dropped out of any project willingly because it was sexually exposing her and projecting nudity.No mob of people preferably women ever took the streets to condemn the role of society and media in her objectification. No women ever came up to oppose abuse, molestation, assault, forced prostitution at the hands of pimps, rape, acid burning, human trafficking, sexual domestic and marital violence, honor killing, mutilation and forced abortion and all as a result of such a negative depiction of women in our societies.All of these crimes occur because women did not demand respect from the societies.

And why do i reach this conclusion? Women never want to be respected after all.They just want to be loved and cherished nowadays, and this approach often lands them into trouble as they are used just like tissue paper and thrown away in the name of love.They never explore their talents because they lack self-respect.How can anyone demand respect without developing self-respect first?We are  totally and shamefully responsible for the development of such a shallow society with shallow characters and thinking.Our hallmark is our motherhood i believe, and we are not practicing it in order to create any appreciation for ourselves.I am not eliminating men from the burden. They are also a part of the crime as fathers, cause they are also responsible to be a role model for their sons by exhibiting the due respect which every woman deserves.

 

SO men and women….get rid of sex-obsessed, desensitized, sexually driven, gross minded society and respect woman for more than her skin-deep beauty, her talents, her abilities and independence, strength and intelligence…FOR ALL SHE TRULY IS!
