Yeah, I know it's kinda late but still I can wish you guys a Happy Women's Day. But, is it enough to give only a one day to celebrate a day of womanhood? While she's always by your side 24×7 from morning tea to good night wish in the form of mother, sister, wife, grandma. But for me showing your care, love, respect and affection just only for one day isn't enough!! Yes, it is not enough make me feel special only for one day on the name of women's day because I know another day you'll make me feel devastating, you'll laugh at me and my IQ saying that you're a girl you can't understand. Yes, it is not enough for me to feel empowered like all other girls just for one day and think that yes I'll change this whole world and another day accept all the odds and evils of this society.
And I know it isn't enough for any mother, any wife, any daughter, any sister and any woman but they do compromise with their wishes, their preferences, their dreams and ultimately with their lives. Every woman who're reading this letter of mine I want to say to all of you for God sake stop being so kind. If you want to celebrate the real women's day just don't give up on your dreams, just follow your heart, please don't be silent, raise your voice against wrong.
If you really want you existence in this society then please don't wait for any angel because no one will come, be like one. And whenever you feel alone then just remember the lyrics of "Ekla chalo re" by Rabindranath Tagore. And always remember our fight isn't against any one else but with our own self. Because we women are accepting tyranny of this society nobody is forcing us. That's why before changing the society we've to change our own mindsets.
To all the men who're reading this letter guys your small small actions can make us feel superior or inferior. Neither wish us women's day or birthday's just gift respect and love to all the women you know. Just don't let her down by your actions. Because without your help we can't make this world a better place for women. - from a girl's soul.....
This is my challenge piece. I challenge @so_you_write to write a kimo on love.
A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.
Kimo poems are an Israeli version of haiku. Apparently, there was a need for more syllables in Hebrew. That said, most of the rules are still familiar:
3 lines. No rhymes. 10 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 6 in the third. Also, the kimo is focused on a single frozen image (kind of like a snapshot). So it’s uncommon to have any movement happening in kimo poems.
