Chains

Chains short poem

Photo by shioshvili

“Man is born free.
But,
Everywhere
He is in chains.”
Woman, is never born!
Birth is life…
She is only gifted,
with a pair of machines…
We call those machines
‘Eyes’ on a man’s face!
Unbreakable, indestructible
Chains are made with them.
‘Tears’ when in man’s Eyes!
The machines are too rusted,
Unrepairable!
But, the chains come out
with No Barriers…
Chains…
Embellished with pain,
sufferings and tolerance.
Woman, is never born…
She is manufactured!
Different shape.
Different Form.
Different Colour.
Different Functions.
But,
The machines work alike…
With chains shining bright!
