    Trap her indoors,let her be freeIt matters not It'll be "her fault" Saree clad,dressed in a skirt It matters not "She asked for it" Face painted or shrouded in a veil It matters not "It's still her fault" She didn't want it He thought she did It matters not "She's the one to blame" She said "No" He decided "Yes" It did not matter "She deserved what she got" She's only a toddler She can't even talk But it doesn't matter He will have his way Her body, her right Her freedom, her fight Her consent, her choice are all her fault His eyes, his gaze,His filthy touch, His show of machismo are also her fault.

    How do you get rid of shadows that lurk?Darkness is gone, yet you struggle in the murk Blinking, you try and attune to daylight,but are unable to bear even the brilliance bright Thoughts that were banished to recesses in the mindresurface to haunt of memories unkind Of unresolved conflicts, of unforgiven deeds,of unforgotten woes and unfulfilled needs And you wonder how many devils you are to fightbefore you're at peace and all seems right You set out in search of a divine forceto purge the mayhem, to show you your course You grope in the hope of a healing hand,that will sweep you off to a faraway land Finally, unheard you turn inwards and pause,seeking an answer, a reason, a cause Strangely, the turmoil begins to easethe voices in your head now seem to cease drawing from a source lying deep withinyou calm the storm, the raging din When slowly you realize how this came to bewhat was there all along, only now you can see.. The strength to liberate resides in your coreyou must delve in, to summon it

    In moments of quiet solitudeshe pondered, oft aloud,reminiscing about a brighter time,the dazzling lights, an awestruck crowd About those several years and morethat she had given her soul and heart,surrendering all she ever hadto her life's pursuit, her art How vibrant her youth had been,before a shadow age had castand the dancer that she once washad become a memory of the past Now her tranquil eyes concealedremembrance of the bygone yearsletting go of the mask only whenthey welled with those tell-tale tears The once strong and elegant framewas now feeble and fragilebut the wrinkled countenance could not hidethe radiance of an eternal smile Then one day, she heard yet againthe cadence of that familiar beatthe sound that had at one time beenthe language of her adept feet Slowly she rose in submissionknowing this was her only chanceand performed for the very last timewhat became her final dance.
