Roses are dead
Violets don’t bloom
I’ve been labelled a curse
Right from my mother’s womb
Being a girl is a job without pay
Where all you here is what will they say
You don’t have to go so away
You can’t work, you need to stay
because you need to serve
That’s your duty as a girl they say
Why do you need to be educated?
Independent girls are just a walking act of shame
No-no,you have to learn to make round chappatis
Or else how will we face the society and the aunties?
When the relatives come serve them tea
And you my son, you sit with me
Do you need something beta?
Your sister will bring
After all you’re my loved one
And I understand that Guys have their needs
Whatever you ask, there it will be.
Why this Gender Discrimination mom?
Beti that’s what the society teach
Girls are meant to weep and breed
Boys are meant to work and be freed
They can’t cook or weep, agreed?
When will the society see
That equality is the key
Nobody’s better or worse
Everybody is God’s handy work
who deserve to live a life filled with equality and love
So stop being so judgmental
Open your mind’s rusted handles
And then look
The world with equality and potential
Please don’t categorize us into man and woman
After all we are all just Human.
