(Un)heard voices of a woman

This poem was written by me on the women’s day when I felt absolutely nothing after seeing the gung-ho bunch on face book. If someone wrote something as a tribute to woman, some other clicked a picture. Everyone tries to project their respect towards women but do these people outnumber those who wait for an opportunity to pounce on women? It feels so helpless to think about the sad state of affairs. In midst of all the crimes against women I saw a sudden havoc among few groups who tried to suppress a woman’s voice against a woman’s crime. They bullied a blogger who was empathetic towards the victim and said that every man should be away from the baseless feminist and called her names which I cannot mention on this forum. If calling a criminal “a criminal” is an objectionable crime, I am sure it is a futile attempt if we try repairing their minds. Do read my poem below!

Happy women's day to all the women.
Happy women's day to all the men who are with women to get rid of the bad o"men".
A happy women's day is not to just brag about the day.
A happy women's day is not just something to show off and say!

The real happy women's day is the day when she is actually happy and not in fray.
The real happy women's day is when there is no looming cloud which is grey.
Let's take a small oath today that tomorrow should be better in every possible way.
Let's just join our hands with the hope of a better society and let's get together and pray!

Hope the day comes when she eventually gains respect from all.
Hope to make her point she always doesn't need a brawl.
Hope both the genders stand on the same plank and there would neither be rise nor fall.
Hope a woman will not be objectified and treated only like a pal!

The woman is your mother who thinks you are her best creation.
Even God shuns thinking he is none to frame the rules for this relation.
For every problem you face a woman can be your sibling and give a solution.
She can be your best friend and advise when there is a commotion!

Before advising men fellow women should learn to treat each other with respect.
Rather than pulling each other down, one should think about their better prospect.
Before asking others not to ill-treat you, love yourself and build supremacy over you.
Stick to your words and do not lose confidence however hard people try to break you!

I hope a day passes by without fearing about every passer-by.
I hope when a woman walks she doesn’t have to bend her head to avoid the looks so sly.
I hope a woman becomes confident enough to give replies to questions –what, where and why!?
I hope a day comes when a woman does what she wants to and has no need to lie.

You I and every one build this society we are living in from ages.
It has good, bad, ugly embedded and also malicious people in the disguise of sages!
Hoping that everyone can be free spirited and not live in the self-built cages.
Hoping the way many think and want others to think gradually changes!!
