I wish I had a Voice

by Anjali Punia
(Bahadurgarh,India)

Amidst fast running world full of noise
when I hear screams of miserable plight
I wish I too had a voice

Simple, Docile submissive I may appear
Dominating,authoritarian,aggressive I might become
only if I had a voice

While searching for my own voice
All that I could find was a terrible noise
A noise that yearns to become a voice to be heard
as it wants to tell its choice
But the World won't give a damn to my choice
I wish I had a voice

Every time I took a step ahead in my life
I was held back at the edge of knife
Every time I was subjugated to torture
for being a woman
Only I know how terribly I wished
to have a voice

Ages have passed and several may still have to pass
but I still have hope
Someday I would definitely find my voice.
