leave  home with eyes full of dreams,

 face lit with smiles.

With hope and confidence,

With zeal and strength,

As much as yours, my friend.

 

I feel equal, I feel safe, I feel secure;

I feel I am a person, not just a girl.

I respect you and expect just the same from you.

Nothing More, Nothing Less.

 

I walk on the roads fearlessly.

Why should I worry, it’s my world too,

As much as it is yours.

 

But you tell me every day that “Whatever you are, you are a girl”.

You look at me like you look at an object.

You throw at me every day, your dirty words,

As if I am a garbage bin.

I feel unclean, I feel eroded.

 

When your lustful eyes dig deep into my body, it hurts.

I am not an object,

Nor a garbage bin.

I am not your property.

 

You have fun and then forget, but it remains with me.

It frightens me when I step out of home the next day.

It upsets me when I am alone,

It leaves a scar forever.

 

I don’t feel safe.

The dreams in my eyes share the space with fear and caution.

The smile on my face is not the same.

 

I can muster the courage, to fight back. I am bold, I can fight.

But why do I have to fight each day just to be myself?

I can decide to forget what you do to me,

But its not as easy as it is for you.
 

Why can’t you be human?

I am human. I respect you.

You be human too and respect me.

Nothing more, nothing less.
