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 my body apart but you can’t tear my soul,
Rape my dignified virtue but you can’t poison my purity,
Burn me alive 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 as a blood of a man,
I am an inspiration as a beauty of creation,
I am a victory 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
