A POEM WE FAIL TO ACKNOWLEDGE.
Why do they believe it is fine?
For a girl to quiver at nine.
So, is this masculinity?
To blacken our virginity.
They do not believe in consent
Neither do they seem to repent.
A four letter word that holds fear
An action done by someone dear.
RAPE, very often neglected
Societies are not to blame
For the women dumped infected
It’s the mindsets we have to tame.
Nothing was wrong with her attire
You think so?, that’s insanity!
What’s wrong is your foolish desire
Where is the humanity?

Change is the law of life. Nothing is perfect and everything needs evolution, improvements, and change either on a smaller level or a bigger level. Each organization, institution, community, and even the smallest unit, citizens, need changes from time to time. As time passes by, everyone’s perspective of understanding the world keeps evolving, and then they see the flaws and need for changes in this world. Most of them ignore it, but those who get concerned about it and wish to implement the changes are called Changemakers, an unbiased community that seeks the betterment of the society going beyond the barriers of caste, race, region, and religion.
The generational trauma of my ancestors Still store themselves within my teenage mind. I flinch at sudden movements of a cis white male And begin reciting my eulogy through my head. I did not get the chance to message my mother goodbye.
“Go back to where you came from!” already forgetting That their foundation was built upon the backs of The beated, bruised, and dark skinned.
