A lamb in the jungle of men
Girl asked many questions to her mother:
Who has made us;
A lamb in the jungle of men?
And who the men are?
We are your children
'The children from the womb of mother'
Born as man and woman
Half of the world belongs to us
Why have they encroached, our queendom?
Why are we called only a kingdom?
Is it fair mom?
'No it is not fair'
I am your mother.
Your nation is your mother,
Politicians and bureaucrats:
All those criminals raped me,
My pains, your pain and the earth's pain,
Our pain is for devils enjoyment
On this earth, women is also an earth
People robbed both, , mercilessly
What difference -
Man and woman?
There are only two Castes,
Male and Female,
White or black or moderate,
With same geography
Caste, religion and creed,
Existed on the tongue of greed
All the above three are the weed
And nothing else
But who is more harmed? The rapist or the raped,
Rapist harm themselves,
