‘In’- Dependent

She was working,

She had her own home,

She made her money,

She was independent ?

He showed her the freedom,

Then, captured her wings,

Still flying but chained at the ankle.

The chain was long,

As long as He wanted.

She was thrown back on the ground,

As she went beyond

‘IN’-Dependent.

He never said,

But showed her,

The patriarchy still rules.

Her wings were moulded,

As He liked, not She.

She was Dependent,

On her,

In-‘dependence’.
