Yes, I Want Freedom

Yes, I Want Freedom

2 mins

In a land with a constitution which preaches equality

Where a girls “conduct” against set social norms does not bring a tag of “lack of purity”

Yes I want freedom from these illogical beliefs which tie us down with rules abound!


A world with schools and institutions that provide us the true ”vision” of education

Yet here we are suffering burns in culinary and factory work at ages so juvenile

Even after activist voices of persuasion


Yes I want freedom to study, enough to grow and make my family overcome economic drudgery!

A world of Unity in Diversity is where we reside

Yet a poor ragged old lady is someone we fail to stand beside


Yes I want freedom from the injustice of economy, for all humans to live in harmony!

A land of female warriors whose valour marks our history

The obsolete condition of women in most homes and other sectors forever remains a mystery


Yes I want freedom from the bruises unspoken,

For someone to travel the lanes of their eyes unspoken!

A land with Equality at workplace is a dream we see

Sheer humiliation from superiors is what we meet


Yes I want freedom from this harassment, for such goons to face similar embarrassment!

A land where auspicious ceremony is what we call a wedding

Marrying off a girl so young, no one repents her education and childhood sacrificing


Yes I want freedom from the bondage of child marriage,

An open window from the weight of dowry holding carriage!

Enlisting our vision of true freedom

Has brought a change only seldom

Working towards it is the need of the hour

For in this need is the true happiness of ours
