They taught me to fear the dark

They forgot to mention what happens in the light

A day out in this world

Where one could do nothing but fight.


It all starts from the very moment

She sees the light

But that would be the last time

She was made to see something this bright.


Her eyes put to sleep

And cut her wings before she took flight.


Walk the streets and you will find

The sights of horrors

Visible even to the blind


A dozen here, a dozen there

No place to live

No people to care.


Monsters on the road,

Monsters behind the chair,

These cruel pervert minds,

Not a woman they spare.


It's your fault they say,

Walking on the road looking like that

And putting yourself on 'display'.


Or for speaking out

For unfair means, but then again

You 'need' a man throughout


Too short,too long

Too thin too fat

Change your mindset

Or you'll end up looking like that.


You speak up,

Your voices drown.

You shut up,

You face his frown


Only a daughter, a wife or mother

As long as she she cooks

One has nothing to bother


They taught me to fear the dark

They forgot to mention what happens in the light

A day out in this world

Where one could do nothing but fight.
