Last week, there was a Twitter contest hosted by VoElla.com which is an online magazine for women. The challenge was to write a poem (in 140 characters or less) with the word “Fearless” in it. You can find the poems of all the participants here. Out of all the poems submitted, four were selected for this week, and I am glad that mine was one out of the four. Here’s the poem I wrote:

Darkness thick
Like curling smoke
Grey chill
Of midnight
Let the dark
Keep its demons  
Fearless we stand
To conquer
Nightmares with might.

We live in a world where some of us are still afraid to step out at night. Each day we hear terrible stories about crimes committed against women. My poem is dedicated to all women. We are brave and courageous and not afraid of the weak, narrow-minded, chauvinistic, perverted insects out there.

Please do listen to the podcast. The link is in the tweet below:
