Here I sit,
And here I wonder,
How to escape,
How to wander,
Then came up the idea of marriage,
Something so beautiful,
Yet turned ugly,
Marriage to me was supposed to be something sacred,
But now that I see it,
It seems just an escape route,
An escape route from all that I dislike,
An escape route from all that torments me,
When this beautiful bond did became so superficial?
When did it turned just some legal framework for sex?
When did it became another way for us girls to escape the shackles that they were bonded in?
When marriage did became a way of liberation?
When did something so sacred become so profane?
Here I sit
And here I wonder
Am I now even marrying for the right reasons?
PS: I wrote this piece of so called poetry keeping in mind of the society I live in that is the Islamic society where one is not allowed to have any intimate relationship before nikkah. For any level of intimacy even just shaking hands to a male that is not blood related is known as sin or even just sitting with him with distance so long that 4 more people can sit between them is also taken as wrong.
Where possibly being a girl is just wrong. Where at the age of 20 when you are allowed to make decisions like your career and everything but you are not allowed who you choose to spend your life with because you are still a kid and you are still very much immature and irrational.
Yes that is the sad reality of the society that we live in and we continue to live in.
It is where oppression is not a big deal because we should be thankful that we are allowed some level of liberation which is also based on the right and wrong perspective that is set by the society.
