In the animal kingdom
There are the smaller versions of the bigger
Defying the rule of equality.
In the land of the alphabets
There are the upper cases
And the lower cases
Defying the norm of respect for all.
In the earth’s hydrosphere there are the oceans;
Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern, Artic Oceans
In their respected descending classes
Then the seas, lakes, rivers, streams and brooks
Pay homage to their kings by their flowing contributions.
Can there be equality to the tether?
When mountains glare at us
Showing their masculinity or femininity
And giving us proof of their variances?
Do we really want equality when we stand to lose the little help?
Are we really capable of fending for our emotions in torrential downpour of attacks?
Can we lift the heavies and turn around for the tiredness?
Remember, carrying isn’t all
There’s the sleeplessness, the whining, the feeding and the many chores.
Will we really be free if we become equal with societal mini-gods?
What will we gain if we are the mini gods instead of the mini goddesses?
Maybe respect must be sought
Equal remunerations for equal efforts must be achieved
But do we need to be bosses with our intermittent childlike hearts?
I may be in the land of wonder
Being swept and caressed by the handsomeness of doubt
And being frightened by the possibility of the winner takes it all
If that is it, let the seduction of doubt take its course and faze
And fright of the unknown turn to blindness
And help me see through the darkness
