I have been battered

I have been chained

They say they worship me

But actually they want me tamed.

I can be gagged

I can be maimed

They say I am no one

But I refuse to be shamed.

My spirit is uncrushable

My will indomitable

I may be tethered

I will keep trying to rise again and again.

  1. I love this, Punam. It speaks a tragic beginning, but it pushes through with a sense of empowerment and identity. So beautifully and gracefully penned. ❤️❤️❤️ The imageries in this piece are startling, the comparisons very clever to give such clear, strong narrative.
