She was made by nature to grow… to nurture… to take life further…
But she was rejected even before birth…
When she was allowed to be born, she was gifted with the Guilt of it…
She was expected to Sacrifice for the family,
She was abused and then suppressed,
She was confused and riddled with self doubt,
She was traumatized when she was judged for every little thing…
She lived in constant fear of Social Stigma…
And despite the burden of it all, she knew she was expected to take life further…
So, Taking all of this in her stride, she grew, slowly but surely, leaf by leaf…
And then one day, suddenly, before she realised, she had blossomed into a full fledged plant…. a plant nurtured by self love and awareness… into a life that bore the fruits of Happiness and growth for the world….
