Beyond the barriers of Prejudice.

Don’t give me a smile 

if you can’t stop being
the reason behind my tears.
Yes, I am a woman.
Gentle and sedate on the outer layers 
but on the inside,
there lies tremendous strength in all my weaknesses,
which may take you a lifetime to fathom.

Don’t give me a rose
on make believe occasions, 
if you can’t give me the respect I deserve.
I know who I am.
I know what I am capable of.
Try to see beyond your prejudices.
Try to see the woman in me.
