these eyes


THESE EYES








These eyes !
What are they looking at?
These eyes 
 why are they looking sad?
  Is it a dread?
  Is it a threat?
 There is pain and fear
  They look far 
  Though so near.
   They plead 
  But then retreat.
There is agony and despair.

Oh! they are a woman's eyes.
 Conditioned to so appear.
Scared and scarred
From all happiness marred. 

Never sure
Never secure 
Trust is something
Which only lures
She knows its all deceiving 
But still goes on believing
Only to find herself
Trapped in a snare.

**********************

O! woman do not despair
There's hope in the air
Go on and  fight 
You'll get your right
Do not be shy
Don't close your eyes
You stand your ground
Let your feet be found
Ensconced in firm beliefs.

Show the world
The right to live
Is your's through God
Its His Gift 
Its not an alm
You are HIS child
HE wants  you nurtured
not sacrificed.

HE wants that 'you' be mother to 'them'
Who think they reign supreme
And make them worthy 
To be called 
The children of that 'Universal King'

  4. There is a swing in the mood after the asterisks, or are these different poems? Beautifully captured remonstrance and resurgence.
