When I was li’l, had heard even god was a woman.
That she is watching us all from up there.
But somehow I feel she won’t know,
What it is to be one.
For she had a benefit since birth,
The reason her idol is always smiling
The biggest boon of her life;
That she never had to live on this earth.
She didn’t have to wonder what to wear
A jean a tee or a kurta and jean
She wouldn’t mind anything
Anything which could make those eyes not stare.
Those eyes which skillfully penetrate,
The look that she’d fear and hate
The look as if they were peacefully undressing you while she…
She never felt that sweat on her forehead.
She was never disallowed to go outside
She was never disallowed because she was a girl
And so she never understood how Unfair!
Her Husband never used to beat her,
Her baby never got rejected
Her heart never felt dejected
Her values were never stood trodden
Her dreams, never broken.
She was never forcefully held by someone
No one could dare stalk
Liberty could be her passion;
A door that needed no lock.
She didn’t have to go get a job
In a world where she knew men were dominant
In a world where even men knew that they were..
She never had to sit erect, when inside the fear made her heart throb.
Fear of the unwanted
Fear of the undesired
Fear of reality.
She never had to worry how to talk,
Think about her manner of walk,
As to what the guy will think;
Even when she will simply wink.
If still I am patient with this world
And still am smiling at my poor being
Why does the man who bows in front of the goddess
Wants to cage me, just at the cost of his ring?
