As I am constantly being told to compromise and adjust, I filled with disgust and sadness – all at the same time. This is my poem No Questions.
About the poem
As a daughter, as a wife, as a daughter-in-law, as a woman… all my life I’ve been taught not to ask questions. To accept, to compromise, to adjust and to surrender, I’ve been taught to live upto others’ expectations and be what they feel is ” ideal”. I’m denied of having hunger, fatigue, curiosity and urges. I’m denied of being a human. I’m a woman and that’s what I should be. Shouldn’t I?!!!!
They like me
because I do not question.
when I’ll start asking
and they won’t have any answers.
