Poems

I am not your bird so you can cage me in,
I am not your slave so you can rule me too,
I am not your doll so you can play me with,
I am a woman, a free spirit,
I am a woman, a free will,
I am woman, a free wish.

I am not your commodity so you can commerce me with,
I am not your possession so you can sell me too,
I am not your wealth so you can deal me in,
I am a woman, a free soul,
I am a woman, a free joy,
I am a woman, a free bliss.

Rule me not, I am born stubborn,
Dominate me not, I am born wild,
Prison me not, I am born free,
I am a woman, an untameable,
I am a woman, an unbendable,
I am a woman, an untouchable.

Touch me not, I am burning fire,
Hinder me not, I am raging wind,
Chase me not, I am shooting light,
I am a woman, a power unfathomable,
I am a woman, a patience immovable,
I am a woman, a passion irresistible.

Rip me apart but you can’t ruin my soul,
Stole my dignity but you can’t pollute my purity,
Burn me to ashes but you can’t kill my spirit,
I am a woman, an enigma unknow,
I am a woman, a shrine mysterious,
I am a woman, a temple forbidden.

I am a source of the world as a mother,
I am an inspiration of creation as a beauty,
I am a statue of patience as a mother of a warrior,
I am a woman, a love in abundance,
I am a woman, a tolerance ultimate,
I am a woman, an acceptance generous.
~Sw. Chidananda Tirtha
