Painting by Sufia Khatoon

She did follow a head
Feelings were not her own
And look at her
She is standing to lose
Her sanity
To an era of joy
Splurging fancies.

She did follow a reasoning
Not her own
And now she regrets
Why did she not mention
It to you? Oh, heart!
surely wouldn’t you
Have led the way?

She followed just once
Her dream and today
In throes of her passion
seeks solace
Her dreams dwell
With joy, hope, renegades
Abundant where she
Divulges the deluge.

None, now,
No more of gibberish.
Follow your heart
Not just people
For people pass
Like rain that dries
Love yourself
You are to live
Yet again
Not like the shadows she lived in,
Not once, ever again!

This poem is a creative collaboration between the poet Aiman Abdullah and the artist Sufia Khatoon as part of the 6th Woman Scream International Art and Poetry Festival 2016, the Kolkata chapter of which is being held on March 26.
