Made To Order

The fetters that surround me
 invisible and intangible
have tied me down to a status
 unfulfilling and thankless.

 This might sound ambiguous to most
 that being true on my side
 born in a traditional community
 family strictly orthodox

confines girls to stay at home
 regardless of their qualifications
and brilliance,vouchsafes education   
 as an achievement not to be exposed.

Ironical it sounds, I underwent
such constraints, which placed me
within the four walls, rain or shine
home is where I perform.

The concept gradually percolated
 made me a home bird, I remained
 and remain at home, executing
 the maximal from the minimal.
