A girl playing in her backyard,
Kidnapped and killed for fun,
You over-protect and try to secure,
Societal pressure got you now?
You spend a lot of money,
For all the materialistic wealth,
My freedom is still lost,
When will I find it now?
You stop me from staying alone,
You want me to have an escort always,
Father, brother or a husband,
Does this really help?
I learn to cook sew and dress,
Children and household is my den,
I can too innovate and discover,
Will I get a direction ever?
Let women roam freely,
Let them fall and rise,
They don’t need protection,
Understand we are human alike.
You say leave this country,
Settle somewhere else,
That’s a dream come true,
Is this actually true?
I love my country,
I want to keep it safe,
Accept there is deficiency,
Can we remediate?
The sooner we begin,
The sooner there will be justice,
Kill the demon within,
Release the guarding angel then.
Every girl is India’s daughter,
Sooner you accept, the better,
Tainting my name is not going to help,
If you don’t let me survive, forget about a ‘generation’ next
