Poetry-1

  1. Man up

I hope you don’t ask,

another man to man up,

and understand how we,

silence the breaking of dawn,

rushing through our veins.

I hope you don’t ask,

another man to man up,

and understand how,

we’re attuned to portray,

strength on our darkest days.

I hope you don’t ask,

another man to man up,

and understand how we,

mask pain with resilience,

leaving our bones drained.

I hope you don’t ask,

another man to man up,

but rather stay with us,

as we learn to accept,

what it is to feel afraid.

I hope you don’t ask,

another man to man up,

but rather stay with us,

as we allow weakness,

to pass through our gate.

Poetry- 2

Even when,

you are the,

only woman,

in the room,

remember,

you are an equal.

so don’t let them,

silence your voice,

don’t drown in,

the patriarchal noise,

and remember when,

you choose to fight,

male privilege,

can never outshine,

your reverent light.

– first poem for my daughter
