Because I Am A Girl?

It’s not the skirt,

It’s not the colour of my skin or my lipstick,

It’s the fact that I am a girl.

Am I seen for my education or the career I chose?

Am I seen for my work or the responsibilities I uphold?

Am I seen for my kind heart or the love I spread?

But because I am a girl you’ll abuse me and leave me for dead.

Will I be safe when I reach a certain age?

Will I break the shackles of patriarchy or will it always dictate?

Will you think in your head that I am asking for it?

Will I always live in the fear of being the next hit?

From 2012 to 2018 not much has changed,

From a bus to a temple, every place has been shammed

Nirbhaya’s fate was passed on to Asifa without a debate

If you check the stats, 1 in every 15 mins gets the same fate.
