Poetry Out Loud

How many times with a silenced soul
Shall I endure the cosmic days
Of a low station in life, with submissive smiles

The long days of labour
And rivet of inner adamantine
This spirit that survives

In the buzz of the future
That travels like an indolent housewife
Across horizons and cleaning months

Of leaving chauvinistic husbands
And finding freedom in motherhood
How many times shall we meet then?

At the juncture between the pains
Where suffering becomes a kind of sport
And life the nimble lessons we bleed

Where the only ingredient left
Is the pure resilience of living
On the edge of pangs and hope.
