So it is declared-

I’m a criminal

My biggest crime is 

Being a woman

Second is that 

I am married

Still I seek freedom!

And I didn’t stop there

I even have some dreams…

How could I?

When I’m kitchen queen?

No! No! correction here

Not queen

I’m a slave

Still I took the liberty

To weave life

Being an unpaid employee

How dare I?

Attempt one more crime?

My job is to

Keep everyone happy

Though they will 

Always find a way

To make me feel guilty

How could I deny?

That I have not done

The crime?

Since I’m accused of

Coping well with smiles

Although its a luxury

To which I have no right!

Being happy while 

Living a miserable life

Is my next crime!

How can I outshine?

So being a criminal

It’s my punishment

To suffer till 

Last day of my life!

As there is no escape

From this jail

I am Trapped! 

And no one can 

Give my bail. 

P.S.-Not every poem of mine is my own story! Sometimes they are inspired by situations around me.

    1. Our male dominated society, treats women like a slave, property or a display thing who don’t have the freedom to express themselves and its really a very unfortunate and shameful way to behave towards one who are in no means less than them!
