Will we Just … Be Only waiting
Will we just live like this
On hopes and belief that justice will be done.
Will we keep waiting for the
crime investigations to be sorted.
Will we call the police or are loved ones
When life is at stake,
Can the authorities be trusted, respected
After Nirbhaya got partial Justice
Will we only do Candle March
Silent protest and listen to Sympathising Speeches
When will we hear Shot Death for crime done
Without question and enquires.
Will we ever be able to walk in the moonlight
To star gaze and feel fearless.
Will we be only considered a body
Because God made us from a piece of rib.
To talk about woman empowerment
Self defense and all those big things.
Save a girl child, Educate the girl
And she will stand like a pillar.
Before all this make some provision
To keep her safe in the womb and outside
Because the ill health people on this Earth
Who only see her as their means of pleasure.
Brutally the Mentally needs to be killed
Only that way there will be something better.
I can’t do much, but I shall teach my boy to respect everyone and my daughter to walk with pride.
