The unfair possibilities of life bring women
to a place where dreams remain dreams,
strength runs out and all doors are closed.
Searching for the right path becomes
the nightmare of one’s life.
They said, “welcome to the world”,
as if it is a better place to be.
Maybe it is for men
because as women we are treated unfairly.
We pray with tears, hoping for a miracle,
for God help us find the way.
Always up and down, searching
for the right heart to accept us as we are
and to understand where we need to be.
We have spent most of our lives
feeding our minds with knowledge
to be acknowledged the same as men.
It still feels like we are being locked in jails
where we need to make choices
based on what men think.
