Respect Her Honour

Respect Her Honour

1 min 284 1 min 284

I was returning home from work past 10 at night,

I did not know, it would result in a lifetime fight. 

A group of devils, on a silent street

Attacked me and called it a treat.

Every means to escape I tried,

In vain for help, I cried,

While my esteem broke inside. 

I went around asking for justice,

Not a single door did I miss.


While the number of people who sympathized was very less,

The rest of them blamed me for not wearing an appropriate dress.

Such humiliations no more give me a scare,

For sure, none of them will I spare.

We will not sit back crying over these woes,

With hope and strength, we will get on our toes. 

My whole clan will I now empower,

As sisters and mothers,

Let's teach our sons and brothers

To respect our honour.
