Taslima Nasrin (25 August 1962 - / Mymensingh / Bangladesh)
Human nature is such
That if you sit, they'll say, 'No, don't sit.'
If you stand, 'What's the matter? Walk!
And if you walk, 'Shame on you, sit down.!
If you so much as lie down, they'll order, 'Get up.'
If you don't lie down, no respite, ' Lie down.'
I'm wasting my days getting up and sitting down.
If I'm dying right now, they speak up, 'Live.'
If they see me living, who knows when
they'll say, 'Shame on you. Die!'
In fear, I secretly go on living.
