Woman

by Shreya Jain

I come to this Earth

From the hands of Nature,

And give birth to Man:

Who can feel the warmth of fire’

Who can see those flames rising,

Full of the vibrant colors of life.

The fire that can

Cause destruction

To the land I stand on;

To the land I come from.

I give birth to Man:

Who cannot live without water;

Who can hear the sounds of drops;

Who finds relief in its touch.

The water that can

Stop that fire from rising;

Give life to the starving;

Destroy the land with flood;

Help a seed grow to a sapling.

I give birth to Man:

Who breathes the air;

Who senses the cool breeze;

Who would perish without it.

The air that can

Carry away every droplet of water;

Carry away every grain of sand;

Blow away fire.

I give birth to Man:

Who can smell the essence of soil;

Who can walk on of land;

Who can grow new life from this soil.

The soil that can

Take into itself all the seeds;

Give life to all that is living;

All that gives life to this Earth:

This Earth, where I come

From the hands of Nature,

And give birth to Man.
