I was not born feminist,
But the society made me.
It started when all my strengths
Were somehow reasons of my troubles.
The compassion in me
Was looked down as slutry.
The power to embrace and nurture,
Became reason for my own destruction.
The home that I created with love,
Now arrests me.
When patriarchs couldn't tolerate
Position of women more than a slave.
They compared mothers to cattles,
Cows more loved as they can also lactate.
The world taught me things good and bad,
Created all the rational,
But then itself forgot to learn
How to accept a learned women.
Everytime I disagree or dissent,
You reward me with misogynist attacks.
Better stop the dramas of beti bachao,
Let there be no beti unwanted & unloved.
Beti padhao is a mockery,
Because all they do is sell false dreams
And then teach endurance is the key.
Killing innocent dreams makes them happy.
On Somedays treated as goddess,
On other just defying purity and pollution.
I wish for once I could be human first,
I wish I never had to be a feminist...
