Swimming Alone

Vulnerability of women, Networking with others


1. Saftey Net

In the ocean of life I swim alone

powerful sharks wealthy whales

are there in open hunting,waiting

to sink their sharp teeth to suck

virginal blood of mine to let a howl

of victory over the unsuspecting me

I swim towards an old fisherman with

wrinkled weather battered face 

feeling him to be wise towards him

I swim only to receive a nasty poke 

I swim away away and away feeling

lonely till I saw lonely women swimming

like me but holding to an invisible safety net

of sharing and felt secure in their sisterhood

now I swim alone but feel never lonely

as they are for me and I am for them

(Dedicated to all women who faced sexual harassment)
