For This Resilient 'Woman' by Bhavya Shree V



Poetry 

For This Resilient 
'Woman'


Yes 

This is the day

My neonate 

Arrived out of the blue


Was 

Fragile,

Wrinkly 

damp or even a bit bloody. 

Scared of unseen folk,

With a wry face.


And

Annually 

This day

WE

Blow out the candles 

Have a fiesta for our

neonate


But

covertly

I celebrate myself 

for this day


How absurd?

You will ask 

I am pretty sure .


But

Yes 

I Do it

Annually 

Only to 'ME'

To reminiscent

That long haul

Acute pain 

and

For my raw and unhealed 

Scars 


Yes

Annually

I DO it

To celebrate this

Resilient 

WOMAN;

and for my

Unseen

Maternity"
