Sealed Lips

Suppressed and violated

Tied in shackles of honour 

Nipped  in the nascence

Abandoned when I rebelled.
Roped in the name of relationships

Enveloped in the darkness 

Adorned with the crown of thorns

Lips stitched, words left to die within.
That’s my existence as a woman

In this patriarchal world

Where the Creator didn’t do any injustice

While His creation does it in His name!
