An Ode to a Woman!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on January 24, 2012

Here is a beautiful poem written by my best friend and sister, Ruchi! The poem describes exactly what every woman feels!!! I really liked it. I read this poem over and over again, because I felt touched. I myself sometimes feel just the way her poem describes a woman.


Need a sky to fly, need a river to flow

Need a song to sing, need the light to glow.


I have sorrows, I posses the pains

But I own the legs to run the plains


The eyes may burn, the heart may churn

But with my courage, heads I will turn!


The mountains are steep and the winds cut cold

Yet the “REAL ME” within I hold!!

    Thank you everybody for the appreciation and the constructive criticism 🙂 The reason why I had christianed this piece as “An Ode to a Woman” is because I had expressed the heart of the woman within ! Nevertheless, I also agree that I am a human too, so the poem may touch men and women alike..

    @Arvind,Shantha thank you again for reminding me of my status as a Human too 🙂

    A girl
    One of the beautiful amamzing creation of God

    U can see her divinty in form of “MOTHER”.
    U can see her care of a “SISTER”.
    U can see her innocence in form of “DAUGHTER”.
    U can see her warmth in the form of” FRIEND”.
    U can see her passion in the form of “BELOVED”.
    U can see dedication in the form of “WIFE”.

    beautiful words xpressing a beautiful woman… 🙂

  15. I wish Shantha Kumar had an answer for this irrelevant comment: is this relevant to these days.. otherwise it doesn’t seem womanly but showing human desire…

    It is a human desire and no doubt but don’t you consider woman as HUMAN. She cannot have desires. Only MEN’s are expected to have dreams and desires. Think before you speak is very important Mr. Kumar.

    It is a lovely poem and hope we would have got some lovely words from you.
