wings of fire…..

She never learned hiding in the shadow,
She chose to be independent knowing the paths were narrow,
And she chose to be brave enough,
To draw the right arrow.
Ignoring the world's pressure,
She kept on moving towards her treasure.
Step by step
She started ascending the flight,
But she knew it will be a long fight.
Who knew the poor girl from the small town
will end up wearing the precious crown.
With the cheering of the crowd
Also came fears shrieking aloud
Fear of losing the fight
Fear of not doing right
Fear of falling down
And turn up into a clown
With the society
Keen on suppressing her dreams
Locking her into patriarchal schemes
Tried to crush her wings so hard
That she would end up scarred
Now destiny will turn the table
For the last card
The soul trapped in cages
Will shine the world
With the help of those scars
