Putting on her yellow-est sari,

black round cut sleeves of her blouse

matching the wide shaped color of her bindi,

that centers her forehead

to align thoughts of world less known to women

she tries to fit in;

in pursuits of a world less achieved

“To empower and enlighten”

roughly tidying the brown lipstick shade,

over the outline of her lips that voice out the strongest condemnation

crinkling her nose at the saltiest remarks made,

she, is,

a woman of many words and dreams.
