For The Survival…#poetry

I didn’t understand
how to use a protractor
in the ‘Angles and Triangles’ lesson,
so I asked my sir to explain again.

Sir told me to wait a while
after school because he didn’t want
to waste his period.

I sat in the classroom.
Sir came
and started touching my fingers
instead of teaching me
geometric figures.

He deliberately dropped
the chalk
and told me to take it off
and he started looking
at my body curves.

I was growing physically
and mentally,
what was my mistake?
Sir was well educated and mature,
didn’t he understand his mistake?

Why do we girls
have to face such social problems
when we grow up?
As we girls get older,
why do their eyes scan us?

Even if they have girls
of our age,
why do they sow thorns
in the path of other girls
by making their daughter’s life bearable.

I want to tell everyone,
let all the girls live
their lives their way.
Let’s get together
for the Survival of our daughters
and other girls.

  1. Thanks Jane for this message of awareness. This often happens and has to be stopped by making the girls aware of their rights. Thanks for joining in with this thought provoking message.

  2. Hi, Jane, I totally understand. I encountered a tuition teacher like the one you mentioned. He was so shameless that he tried to flirt with my Mom also not only me. Disgusting people, they are. I don’t know how they get to such powerful posts!

    1. Wow! What a beautiful comment. If I hit the nails it will definitely hurt others because it is true. I think this poem resonated in your mind. Thank you my friend, Lamittan!πŸ™‚


      1. Most welcome, my friend. It’s a great one believe me. It hits directly and softly. I felt the truth and compassion in it as someone who’s been abused in the past, in my childhood. Too painful to even think about. 😌

      2. My pleasure, Lamittan! I know it’s painful. Thank you for encouraging me to write such things. I think the pen is a weapon and I should use it creatively.


  3. I am so glad that you wrote this dearest Jane, it is and always has been difficult growing up as a girl and I can resonate with this very much. With amazing people as you voicing it out I am sure this world would be a much better place for the future generation to be in. ❀️❀️❀️❀️
