Divorced woman

Back from the office
tired and unwell
sits brooding.
What she achieved
by not continuing
the facade of married life
and opting to live alone.
Scorned and ridiculed
by the society and the colleagues.
The fault must have been her
they believe she deserved it.
Where is the peace and freedom
she had chosen for herself.
Life is a losing battle
with or without the family.
She has to be the sufferer.
The wrinkled face frightens her
ailments show bleak future.
No one to attend to when she needs
or weep on her death.
In this merciless world
she is the sole fighter.
