Her blood smells foul;
its nature’s will.
To proclaim her identity as female;
To get an identity for motherhood.
She undergoes several pains.
She suffers from physical pain.
She undergoes mood swings against her will.
She feels insecure and worried.
She gets an intense feeling of hunger.
She can endure this physical pain for a week, months and years;
Yet She smiles,
As she is the only creature who can bear this.
She is a warrior;
and, warriors are never ashamed
