When she was born
She never cried
Even the doctor worried
over her survival-
Did she live or die!
She never babbled as a kid
Always completed the given task
Her parents never ever complained
She obediently did what they asked.
Her teacher never scolded her
As she never raised her voice
Her presence in her peers
Was never ever recognised.
She managed her living quietly
In silence she worked and earned
She never questioned or demanded
What her heart desired or yearned.
Silently she gave into her fate
Submerging herself in a mute ocean
Her wings never flapped or fluttered
She never unwrapped her emotions.
She never spoke of her pain
Neither challenged any norm
Her unusual quality made me wonder-
Was she a goddess in human form?
Picture Prompt Interpretation –
I see girl trapped in a jar, seeking a ray of hope. It’s a glass jar, looks breakable, but she isn’t able to break. Why? May be she is trapped in a jar of her own silence. All that she needs to break free is to ‘Speak Up’, (if only it was that easy!) . The three men outside are her own fears, societal prejudices and stereotypes – ‘Be soft, you are a woman’, ‘Be Quiet, you are a woman’, ‘Tolerate, you are woman’. The ray of sunshine on her hand is making her look angelic. Confirming to the norms with so many suppressed emotions and not even one question, she is the Silent Beauty.
