Perspective – A Poem by Shivangi Shankar


Every girl that ever lived
Was told that essential tale
Of girls being Goddesses
Despite their looks so frail.

Every girl that ever grew
Was fed, nurtured, taught
Lessons in cooking, sewing, too
To behave as she ought.

Every girl that ever read
Was feared, envied, eyed
With misapprehensions, unease
For she was no longer tied.

Every girl that ever won
Was told that girls were better
Motivated every other day
To be the trend setter.

Every girl that ever worked
Was compelled to manage all-
Work and family and herself
Gave her best, stood tall.

Every girl that ever lived
Was unable to sustain
All that she had dreamt for herself
Seemed to be in vain.

Every girl that ever lived
Was proper, dignified
She would fall short sometimes, though
Yet she always tried.

Every girl that ever lived
Would realise one fine day
That she wasn’t born with ten hands
Whatever the world may say.

Every girl that ever lived
Would have an epiphany bright
That she didn’t want to be a Goddess at all
To err, be human, her right.

No matter the story, dreams are places where adventures begin.
