Broken Down

It might be fear, it might be not

And this wall has been standing still,

All around her, since ever

Only with her permission will this wall

Be broken down

Woman

‘Life is a journey’, you said

But once she set her mind

On what she should do

On how her life should be

On what she wants to do

You face her

With your eyes telling

‘Are you sure?’

‘I don’t think you should’

But, no

No

She does not stop

She does not listen to you

Yes, she is stubborn enough to keep

Crawling

Walking

Climbing

Running

Crawling

Walking

Climbing

Running

To have what she wants to have

To be what she wants to be

To be where she wants to be

And on that one day

You find yourself saying

‘Ah, it’s her’

As you gaze at her

At a woman

Who stands on top of a mountain
