What is She for You? A Poem by Sara Khan

This poem was originally published on Sara Khan’s blog.

I should have slept by now

The thoughts of what he said yesterday

Is just overpowering

I know I shouldn’t fuel my mind with negative insights

Yet the thought is a powerful wake up call

For the women all around

A whore, this is what he called his wife

Nothing seemed wrong till she kept quiet

The pain she went through, she kept aside

Now when she is out to rebel and raise her voice

He asks for how many clients does she have

Sadness gripped my mind as to know where society is heading

Still I call her a fool on her thinking

This world is no place for dumb and mute

Had it been a woman so wise

She should have let her voice to rise

She would not have waited for the day

To tell him who was at fault

The truth he was still unaware of

A man’s ego has made him a brute

She sat still thinking good of this man

Who could have protected and rescued her from their evil plan

It’s over, now, she realise

As she saw a stranger in his eyes.
