A Poem for the New Age Woman

Kamala Kanta Dash

I salute your spirit of independence
Your earlier generation coped
Serious Problems of Inequality
Discrimination, Abuse and Violence
Confined to the Four Walls of House

You raised voice
Anything you found unacceptable
It was not the relationship and its Social burden
It was Dignity That mattered
We may call you selfish but you were for self-respect
You decided to quit and end it
Never to look back and ponder
Even that did cost you a lot
And gave you pain and loneliness

You are the new age woman
That men like me need to accept and love
We have been deciding your fate
For centuries,
But not anymore
Need is to grow, accept and give
Love and Respect
For Love is acceptance and Respect
