When She Had Said "NO"

When she had said "No" -
He did not look into her eyes, and
See the heart framed in a casement of pain.
He had taken it to be so,
For he had misunderstood her.
If he had asked her once more, just once more,
Then her pride dissolved..
She'd have rushed him.
Instead he walked away,
Bearing a pain that she had
Not wished to inflict on him.
He had not understood her condition!
Was it too her fault?

Jay's Poetry Palace

Simple, sweet, elegant and tall
Men used such words to me call
The passion these heels brought in me
What a happiness it brought so free
for everyone at my feet did fall

Am i a rebel?

before i was born everyone wished i were a boy
well there i was born a cute little girl
then, was i a rebel?

when i got a mickey as a gift and my sis a teddy
i pulled the teddy off from my sis in a giffy
then, was i a rebel?

In school when everyone wrote about dog
as a favourite pet i wrote on a horse
then , was i a rebel?

When it was my friends birthday and just not mine
I threw a tantrum and succeded in celebrating mine that day
then, was i a rebel?

When papa got me a beautiful red dress
i threw it off for blue was my favourite colour
then, was i a rebel?

When the full class got thrashed for the mistake of just one
i openly condemned the practise of punishment
then, was i a rebel?

When everyone ventured into computers
I insisted on taking up science
then, was i a rebel?

When everyone wanted me to be a doctor
I just wanted and elected to be an engineer
then, was i a rebel?

When everyone worked all day long
I preferred to stay up late at night
then, was i a rebel?

When everyone kept going out and enjoying late nights
there i burried myself deep into work
then, was i a rebel?

When my date wanted to kiss me right at first
All I asked him was to just get lost
then, was i a rebel?

When my parents found me a guy to get married to
I fussed and got married to the man i loved
then, was i a rebel?

When my beloved wanted to start the family
I wanted to stabilize my career first
then, was i a rebel?

When my kid never wanted to have food
I forced the child to have its food
then, was i a rebel?

When our kids wanted to lead life their way
I felt a thorn in my heart and sulked
then, was i a rebel?

When our children left us in the wild
I insisted that we werent alone
then, was i a rebel?

When after my death they would burry me in the cemetry
All i want is to be laid in my backyard
Am i a rebel?

I am tired of being called a rebel
Doesn't it make sense to anyone, no ring on the bell
all I wanted was to live life my way
if only i was let to have my happiness sway
