Women Taught Me Patriarchy Poetry

I Don't Remember How Old I Was
When I Was Groped For The First Time. . .

I Remember My Mother's Friend Telling Me
That Her Husband Didn't Mean To Do It. . .

He Accidentally Grabbed My Chest And
I Shouldn't Worry My Mother By Telling Her About It. . .

I Was A Mere Kid When I Saw
A Women Defend A Predator
As A Child. . .
I'd Often Have Lunch At My Neighbor's House. . .

Every Time We'd Sit At The Table
She'd Serve Freshly-Roasted Chapatis To Her Son First. . .
Followed By Taunt To Her Own Daughter
Over Her Incapability To Make Round Rotis. . .

The Lunch Would Usually End
With My Aunt Eating Leftovers
From Her Husband's Used Plate. . .

I Was Hardly A Teenager
When A Woman Served Us Patriarchy. . .

In 10th Grade. . .
My Teacher's Son Spread A Rumer That
I Allow Boys To Touch Me Wherever They Want
For Some Extra Pocket Money. . .

When I Complained About It To The Teacher
She Insulted Me In Front Of The Entire Class
And Blamed It On My Short Uniform. . .

I Was 15 (Fifteen). . .
When A Woman Showed Me What Male-Privilege Is. . .

My Maid Tells Me. . .
Her Mother-In-Law
Burnt All Her Books One Month Into The Marriage. . .

A Female Colleague Was Slut-Shamed
By Another For Getting An Early Promotion
And The Woman Working At The Chemist
Refused To Sell Me Sanitary Pads
Without A Black Polythene. . .

A Friend's Grandmother Told Me To Lose Weight
If I Wanted A Good Groom. . .
And My Sister Asked Me To Shave My Legs
Before Wearing A Short Dress. . .

Somewhere A Woman Is Still Getting Silenced By Another
A Woman Is Still Getting Judged By Another
A Woman Is Still Is Being Taught Hatred. . .

It Took Me A Long Time To Realilse That
It Was Mostly A Woman. . .
Who'd Ask Me To Behave Like One. . .

For All These Years. . .
Misogyny Disguised Itself
And Slyly Creeped Into The Heads Of The Victims
Making Them Responsible For The Injustice
They Themselves Experience. . .

At 24. . .
I'm Re-Learning The Basics
I Am Trying To Hold Ship
Fighting Against
The Hurricanes Of Internalized Patriarchy. . .

I Am Making Myself Throw Life Beats
At All The Brave Women Around Me
Who Are Trying Their Best To Survive. . .

Sometimes I Wish
I Could Dive In The Ocean Of My Past
And Try To Keep My Right And Dignity Afloat

I Wish I Could Drown All The Misogyny
I Was Taught To Follow. . .

And I Know. . .
I'm Too Close To The Shore To Swim Back Now. . .

All I Can Do Here Is Hope That
I Reach A Land That Is
Fertile With Mutual Admiration And Respect
And Era Where A Woman Is Not Taught
How To Degrade Another. . .

And A Place. . .

Where A Poem Like This
Does Not Need To Be Written. . .
