Her Shield

Her Shield
She never lets anyone destroy her shield

Here is a short poem written by me to inspire every woman, so that she  can create a shield which will always protect her from the evil.

Over a period of time She learned to keep her emotions confined. She was inconceivable to the world Because she was concealed behind an invisible shield. The shield that secured her from the aversive norms of the society The shield that immunised her identity from being trampled by the devils The shield that empowered her to fight against them whenever they tried threatening her existence. The shield that ubiquitously moved along with her shadow, like the army with its commando. The shield that protected her against the impediments that tried to stymie her from achieving the dreams She never let them know that she was carrying an invisible shield, that helped her wounds to heal. Now she has become the shield of someone else’s life, so that they can Fight for their Rights.

Mhh, I wonder whether that shield is resilience...
I also wonder who she would be if she let her emotions free, is she found a tribe where her emotions could be uncaged. I wonder whether that would make any difference to what her person might achieve, or have achieved...
Mmhh....

Aha! That's a great thought.
Yes she has got a platform to uncage her emotions-world pulse, it is.
The shield is of resilience. Wherein she will not allow any one to hamper her peace and happiness. Nor will she allow anyone to create hurdle or hinder progress in her life
She, could be anyone, it could be you, I or any other woman.

Wow, that’s a powerful poem Sushmita. Can I borrow your shield? Can we replicate it to shield fellow women from evil?
Love it
