The Glass Bangle

Being a Woman



Fluttering like a captured butterfly

Frantic, flustered and desperate

Wanting to be free


To fly away

From the burdens

Laden by life,

The hard unyielding taskmaster.


Unable to break free

From the silken bonds

Of expectations and duties

Of love and betrayal.


Until freedom beckons

Drawing closer with

The weakening heartbeats

And the last lungfuls of air.
