The Widow’s Holi
They loved each other deeply before an accident separated them,
She was all numb , speechless to see her love that he would never breathe again..
All her bangles were broken, her vermillion rubbed,”white” was all she was told to wear,
She was made to believe that all colors have dissappeared, and this is the faded life she had to bear..
This was an unjust custom,which even his “love” wouldnt approve of,
But this patriarchal society just needed another reason to keep the “woman’s spirits” off,
So this holi,lets take a step for all those widow who have been robbed off colors from their life,,
Fight for them, add colours of happiness, love, respect so that they truly can be alive..
Happy holi _
