Let’s talk about oppression and subjugation
Let’s talk about suffering and grief
The curtailment of her basic human rights
Think of a woman who not only sustains abuse
But accepts, supports and stands up for it
A mere embodiment of the most powerful person —
her oppressor, her persecutor, the maltreater
Tainted with the same dark motives,
Ominous and foreboding, gloom and doom
Thrusting them back to their burrows
How far will she go to bring those down?
Who are struggling,
Who refused to give in,
who refused to be lessened and minimized
Will she cramp their style?
Her only qualification?
She could be worse
Let us talk about her persecution
