We live in a world that has no shame
in a society that has no care
Women are tripped and they fall
They remain stuck under shoes of lawlessness-
Of men and their systems who love to see
inequality strangling necks of girls and women,
Women stuck in sands of naivety and inferiority
That requires them to serve than be equally served.
When we dare speak out, our tongues get bruised
When we keep quiet, our spines get broken
Laden with so much abuse, we suffer, in silence
Silence is not comfort, silence is eternal pain-
Every woman must know and enjoy their rights.
