A confined girl in a free world.

She was born in a country,

Where the people were free.

She had the choice to blossom,

And breathe in the fresh breeze.

Her parents were liberal,

The wanted what she wanted.

To experience nature, culture and traditions

Of the lands around she.

But then if she did step out,

To see what she wanted.

A million stares was she the subject of,

In the bus, in the car, in the train, even on the roads!

Heckling became a part of her life,

And pepper spray her bae.

It wasn’t what she wore, be it a kurta or jeans,

The stares and looks were part of her daily routine.

 

In the metro, in the bus,

It was like a daily massage,

A massage she did not enjoy,

But she had to bear.

Her parents were worried,

Their child had to be safe.

Safe from the dangerous world,

Of what is called society.

People blamed it on her,

It was her fault.

Why be a women and give,

Impressions to all.

Why step out when not needed,

Why go out with boys,

That’s evil.

You brought it on yourself,Living in this place.

Throw away your mobile phone!,

It causes rape.

 

In a society were girls are killed right before they are born,

In a society were girls are judged before they can stand tall.

In a society were girls are judged on what they wear,

In a society were its her fault, she shouldn’t have been born

Will we see equality at all?
