Incredible Woman By Reena Prasad

Thank you Rejected Stuff And Rhiti Bose for making this April a memorable one with this collaboration on the theme of Incredible Woman. Proud that my poem is a part of it !

Incredible Women Of India


Incredible Woman

Your eyes water often

the way the camera never gets the minute

before the smile grid locks

the way family albums

never let a wrong page flap open


your children still believe in heaven

while lying in your ravaged lap

Incredible that

you keep bringing forth miracles

while giving up all pretenses

to a dignified life

Incredible that

your world values you the least

while you live

and sings paeans to your incredibility

after you leave
