I forgot I am a Girl !!


I forgot I am a girl,
Every action of mine is noticed,
Every step I take is decided by others.
I forgot I am a girl!
I don’t have rights to be “MYSELF”
My academics, career are decided by others,
My choices are controlled,

I forgot I am a girl!
I have to dress according to the men around,
I am told that my attires will evoke man’s desire,

I can be raped because of  short skirts and sleeveless dress,
I am accused of my own rape,
I am accused to tempt men towards me
I forgot I am a girl!
I  am victimized by male’s evil torture,
I am killed through their mere gaze,
I feel like slapping them hard, hit their groins,
But I fear they are more powerful than me physically,
I fear I may become victim to their thirst,
I forgot I am a girl!
They worship me in the form of Goddess Lakshmi, Saraswati, Kali, Parvati,
On the other hand, I  brutally fall prey to a man’s hunger,
They not only rape me physically,
But they emotionally tear me apart.
I forgot I am a girl!
I go through this immense loss, physical and mental trauma,
Still, I am the one who is always blamed for my condition today.!
I forgot I am a girl…!!!!

Hey Guys, I love to write. Usually I write about my personal experiences, I sometimes share thoughts on a few topics like life, friendship, work, relation, travelling and so on. I also have a YouTube channel where I upload travel related contents, I also share some yummy recipes or sometimes I even experiment with some new dish and I also sometimes share my view on skincare. Do check my channel too. It goes by the same name " The Pink Diary". I love creating videos and I hope my audience enjoys watching it too. Do check and also SUBSCRIBE to it, if you are interested in travel/recipes/skincare/unboxing related contents.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 . The day when the incident occured of Gang rape, I guess every girl must have felt angry. I expressed my anger in the form of the poem. Takecare.
