Ripped

on

I am just another woman, tied on both ends
Surrendering to one who takes me over
With strings in their hands and power too
They pull at my sides to exert control
I am bound to obey them both…till…
One dies or the other wins all at stake
Like a beast they pounce on me
Pulling at my ends with brutal force
Ripping me to shreds and devouring my insides
And I am left like a prey clawed upon

I am just another woman, tied on both ends
Waiting to be ripped open by the man who reigns

    Powerful imagery. Though I hope we fully get away from this kind of mentality in society soon. Real equality is needed!

    Powerful imagery indeed, and extremely well said. It is way past time for needed social change in so many areas, including gender equality. A great post.

      Thank you so much 🙂 You are right, it is high time we bring about social change. The society is burdened down with fake gender roles!
