In The Eyes of a Woman

Updated on November 4, 2011

A man was making his way through the desert sand

Where mischievous mirages made sea out of land

The sun was blazing bright with all its might

A virtual sea kissing the golden beach was a spellbinding sight.


He beheld a woman with her face lurking behind the veil

Sparing her eyes every feature it did conceal.

With her sturdy hands, she weeded the garden

But was unable to weed the petty minds of men!


Suddenly, she raised her doe-eyes

The very gaze of them was sufficient to hypnotize.

The fatigue of the weary traveler vanished

The thought of her chores from her mind was banished.


She sat still and he stopped walking

And their eyes did all the talking.

He saw in them a girl, puny and shy

Waving her school-going brothers goodbye


While they gamboled, she swept the floor

But she couldn’t sweep away the adamant fallacies galore!

When her brethren, in comfort slept

Beneath the summer sky she wept.


The girl then grew into a dame

Craving for the luring name and fame

But, instead of a stethoscope

All she got was a shattered hope.


Now he could clearly understand

Her dreams had been buried under the desert sand.

With neither words, nor wail

She expounded a woman’s woeful tale.

Beautiful eyes of a Kashmiri woman from Srinagar, Kashmir, India. We met her and my wife shot this while on our honeymoon trip to this awesome place called "heaven on earth".

From inside the house, there came a call,

“Come, clean up the dining hall.”

She came back to her senses and had to depart

He evanesced with her picture etched in his heart.


Her mesmerizing eyes drove him back to that place

He still remembered that mystic face.

A wish to converse with her arouse

So, he headed towards her somber house.


What he saw was utterly shocking

The eyes were shut which had done all the talking.

The corpse lay outside a room

Her wrinkled hands clutching a web-covered broom


Her cursed life was full of monotony and grief

So, from her menial tasks she finally, got relief.

She had died while removing the cobwebs on the wall

Poor lady! She couldn’t remove the cobwebs of the society at all!


“In the eyes of a woman” depicts the awful state of most women in our society. How far the world has gone and how boldly we say that women are standing side by side to men today, the pity state of women from around the world still doing those menial tasks could never be concealed. Still men are dominating them and this is the reason they lack behind, especially in developing countries where most population is still living in villages and the life of a woman is as worse as it was centuries ago.

Time has come to liberate women and set them free from men dominance, confinement, and oppression. Time has come to empower women such that they stand self sufficient in every part of their life.

This was my second poem at hubpages. I hope you will like it.
