“Shhh! It’s your turn now”

Use this as the first or last line in your piece.

There is no restriction on length or format of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap.


Shhh! It’s your turn now

They ask me to speak, but gag me with conditions

Hand me the mike but ask me to say nothing

What sort of freedom of expression it is, I ask

When I can only say what they think it’s proper

Where my voice can only be heard when I’m mute

Shhh! They say, don’t blurt out the truth openly

Don’t wash the dirty laundry in public, save our faces

Don’t air your grievances in front of strangers


You have the liberty to express your thoughts

But don’t cross the boundaries we set for you!


A woman’s perspective!
