Why me? by Shwetha Lakshmynarayanan

Why do I fear my own existence when I walk on those empty roads?
Why do I feel the need to be protected when I know I can protect myself?
Why Should I bear all the pain when you roam out as if nothing happened?
Why am I not allowed to follow my heart and claim that I am trying to be safe?
Why are my parents subjected to that fear of having a child of the fairer sex?
Does this all really have an end? Or is it just going to be the way it is today?
Do I even have the right to ask for my own safety?
Do I even have the right to assure my parents, friends and all other people that I will be safe wherever I go?
Can I ever walk straight ahead without fear even though I see someone with blooded eyes coming my way?
Will I ever wake up to the day when I am treated with the level of dignity and respect that I was expected to get?
Will I be able to smile the day when by God’s will I give birth to a girl?
Don’t treat me like the Devi you call……treat me like a human…let me live!!
Let me not suffocate in the world I live….do not stab me…..do not objectify me!! I did not do a sin by bearing a single different chromosome!!


Am just like you….. I want to be happy ….. I want to be safe too….
