We the women

Drowned in the pool of prejudice,

Being born privileged, is a bliss.

But I never understood this gap between men and women,

I’m sure of many things that he cannot do but I can.

~

I think it is too late,

To right my wrongs.

For I have discriminated and promoted hate,

Between genders, for quite long.

~

Because I stood for what I said,

And I wasn’t forced to swallow my protest.

One of the many things that I don’t understand,

Who created this difference between a man and a woman?

~

I still struggle to enjoy the nights,

Outside on endless roads.

Because my privilege won’t save me after twelve,

Seek help for safety? But from which god?

~

You talk about equality, I’d rather call it a pretence,

Because I don’t know what are the privileges of being a woman.

How does it feel to go out after the sun sets in the world’s shame,

Shame of objectifying women who go through so much pain.

~

No, I’m not weak. I am not weak,

I’ll keep shouting for what I want until my voice reaches its peak.

Until I kill this difference that I am sure you have created,

Until what you see as equality, is actually hated

All around the world.
