Poetry

Strength

She wanted a strong man, like him perhaps,

Who could get lost in the vastness of sky

And still find home in her eyes

She was a strong woman, her eyes could tell

Her strength was silence when she desired to scream

It was waiting, when she wanted to run

Or abstinence, when she desired him

A smile when she wanted to shout

And run when she was terribly sick

Yet she wanted a strong man

Just to be less strong sometimes

To let her loose and be vulnerable

Not because she wanted to be weak

But because sometimes, she wanted rest

But the chase just got stronger by the day

She decided to give up on the idea of him

Yes, she will have to be strong always

But at least, one pursuit must come to end

She thus chose solitude

When she wanted someone.

Namita Satija
