she forgot her kith and kin
she forgot all she believed in
all she remembered was impossible love
her need to make him see the heavens above.
her time , her life, her duties, her promises
her responsibilities all could burn to ashes
all she cared was for the deep happy voice
the chuckle in his throat was now her choice
Born to fear for life was she,
Of her first home, never sure
If they knew she was a she,
Would she see the world outside…
If she did, indeed, see the world
Would they drown her in a tub of milk
Or lay her on a bed of silk
Would she be hugged or be lugged …
Hey girl, hey woman to be, March on, Fearless …
Take your place in the sun, don’t ever apologise

The world is waiting…
It’s yours for the taking…
Hey girl, hey mother to be, march on,

Daily Prompt : Help
Helping someone always makes me happy,
Be it a parent, a sibling or even my puppy
My patient, my friend, my child or my hubby…
The radiant smile, that look divine
Ups the brightness of the one on mine..
Many a sleepless night suited me fine…
Grateful I am to be made an instrument
Happy to help, happy to have meant
that lil extra in that little moment….!
May I always have that opportunity
To be of help, in any place, any eventuality!
Destiny, where did you get The Nerve
To make her life, on curves, go sverve?
Why did you make her fall in love
If he was so many a notch above?
Why oh why did you have the nerve
To make her just stand and serve?
How can you have the nerve, dear fickle Fate,
To show her heaven and then as quickly, abate!

Today’s WP Daily Prompt : Fleeting
From crib to grave
From knight to knave
From rags to riches
From riches to rags
From classrooms to boardrooms
From breeches to bridegrooms

From loving to fighting
From living to dying
From nothing to everything
From everything to nothing
From beaten to beating
From loving to hating
From craving to waiting
