    Being girl is a Curse;
    Becaus before speaking u have to rehearse.
    Some says if you cook while you are; menstruating you will reborn as a Bitch;
    And so nothing can be done by a witch.
    Some still think it's ok to demand Dowry;
    After getting it's ok if u bury.
    Thousands of restrictions on a Girl;
    But boys go out with whirl.
    A girl can't wear shorts in Public;
    Coz others will think its a trick.
    The solution to make things normal;
    Is to treat others like Equal.

    Dreamicide

    As dreams sway
    With the winds
    And the leaves.
    Colours depart
    Unceremoniously
    Through petty sieves.

    Hopes beyond
    Window panes,
    Are stuck in
    Narrow lanes.
    Some at edges
    Of brain.
    Others at social
    Restraints.

    Staring eyes,
    Complaining cries.
    The rain that
    Falls here is meant
    In a stinky drain
    Of prejudice.

    The broth in the
    Cooker is
    Purposefully spoilt.
    Light outside
    The room is meant
    Only to the flies.

    A bird that
    Learnt to fly is
    Just a good hunt
    For over a night.
    The one that sang
    Looks beautiful
    Only in a cage,
    Saree is a disguise.

    Dreams are rare
    Ceramics for
    Visitors' display.
    Teen Girls in
    Colors are reserved
    For slave trades.

    Either you die
    As a wife or
    Live long enough
    To be aborted.
    Between two
    The girl that lives
    Here is a curse.
    If she's manly enough
    To dream,
    It can get worse.

    Equality❤

    Boys are taught to respect girls but girls also should be thought to respect boys and also It's ok for boy to show his emotions , as tears aren't a sign of weaknesses , nor are they bound to one gender , they are emotions, they are feelings, they are way to show pain, to show love , to show the world a window to how your are feeling . Yes it's ok for boys to cry because they too are human . Don't let girls ruin an innocent boy's life for your own benefit Boys are not always wrong. Boys are raised by a good mother and sister who had always said no matter what respect girls.At last most important thing equality matters in this world. Boy and girl respect each other not one is doing other is not..

    We women are capable of doing so many things.
    Yet we are suppressed.
    When we voice our opinion, we are sushed down.
    We are called ill-mannered, reckless and what not.
    We talk about equality but equity is lost.

    Why is the price we pay for being opinionated so high?
    Who are we living for?
    We belong to ourselves and no one else.
    We have our own individuality.
    We have our own dreams and abilities.

    Cooking, cleaning, household chores aren't gender based.
    Its something every gender has to learn and perform.
    Women are not the only one supposed to take care of the house, children and what not.
    It's a shame that this mentality exists and that people are ignorant when it comes to this issue.

    We women aren't just meant to be confined in the four walls of the house.
    We are meant to soar high with our intelligence, resilience, perserverance, dreams, capabilities and free will.

    Why are we made to feel like the breathe we take is not even ours?
    What is exactly ours?
    We are ours.
    Our body is ours.
    Our individuality is ours.
    Our dreams are ours.
    Our voice is ours.
    Our life is ours.

    I smell male patriarchy, suppression and the dirt that one woman throws on another in the air.
    What is more beautiful than a woman lifting up another?
    Why are we so tangled that we become obstacle of our own progress?
    The last thing a woman needs is another woman degrading her.

    Men and women lifting eachother up is what a revolutionary world looks like.
    A world with voices of every gender heard is a world full of rhythm.
    Understanding eachother and their individuality, respecting it and helping eachother in the circle of life is a life indeed.
    A life with shared responsibilities, equal opportunities is a life worth living.
    A world with equality, respect and equity is a world afterall.

    We think of a man as a man
    Before we think of him as a father
    Or a brother, or a husband
    But we think of a woman as a mother,
    A sister, a wife or even an arm candy.

    I am an only child, I am no one's sister,
    I am unwed, I am nobody's wife,
    I don't plan on being a mother,
    Nor am I pretty enough to be an arm candy
    Does that make me less of a woman?
    Who am I if not a woman?

    SUNFLOWER

    Dear Kid,
    You are a baby sunflower; you were never meant to be red like a rose or fragrant like a jasmine.
    You were supposed to be yellow, facing the sun and blooming on your own without the feeling of inferiority.

    Sunflower stands tall with grace evoking the feeling of positivity.
    You are as bright as the sun, you possess your own kind of beauty.
    Never compare yourself to a red, red rose or to a newborn lily.
    Not to a jasmine that bloom with fragrance nor to dandelions that dance with the breeze of the wind.

    You are a sunflower, the one that grows like nobody.
    Remember this kid, neither you are inferior nor superior to any.
    Everyone is unique in their own way; we must just learn to embrace the concept of equality.

    It is preached, yet difficult to practice. lives are lost just to earn it, and even more lives shall be lost lost just to maintain it.

    Its not about being the best women standing in men's world, its about standing as the best this world can have.

    She's not a Queen...!

    Don't treat her like a Queen, treat her like a person,
    She's a person, an individual,
    She knows very well what to wear, and where to wear it, She knows how to take care of herself,
    you ain't her boss,
    She knows the world, She knows how fucked up everyone is,
    Trust me when time comes she knows how to take care of your family and still be at the optimum health compared to you and your kids combined...!
    So treat her as she is, respect her decision, coz you know how fucked up are yours...!

    Stop idolizing mothers and sisters and women in general. Yes we can handle pain and some back stronger but that is not an excuse to make us tolerate a goddamn thing.

    I have been asking for equality & nothing more,
    When you are born they commemorate, but when I’m born they mourn.
    Why my success is worthless or because of what I wear not because of my abilities & strength & why yours is because you are man of mettle?
    I’m born to do household chores & not break records ?
    Opportunities are just for him, for her she either have to be recommended & controlled.
    Why Im not considered on par with him....why?

    Ohh Dear Woman

    Ohh dear woman, you are a wonder
    Like rain, like thunder.
    The sun rises to fall on your face,
    The moon bestows on you it's grace.
    Your heart is a source
    Of love and care as it pours.
    Your dexterous fingers sew together,
    Ruptures caused by man and brother.
    Ohh dear woman you are a wonder
    Like rain, like thunder.

    My right

    Am I safe in my country as a woman
    Do I have all the rights what I should have
    Am I not eligible to lead my life on my own
    Why do you treat me as I am not capable of anything
    When I can give birth to a life, don't you think
    I can take care of myself
    When I be a topper in my educational field
    Don't you think I need the same wage as you get
    Why should I wear what you like
    Am I the reason for all the harrassment which I face
    Why should not work and earn at night
    Am I called as egoistic person if I do so
    Why you have to save or protect me
    When I can bear the most painful pain in the world of childbirth.

    Why you say that I have given you this, I made you that
    Have you forgotten that I created you with my blood and love within my womb...

    Do not judge me, listening to you is my will
    It's not my fate

    A Brother

    A brother doesn't have to be
    connected through blood.

    A brother doesn't have to be a sibling
    or an adopted child.

    A brother can be anyone
    connected through love,
    like a church member
    or a very good friend.

    Therefore stepbrother or halfbrother
    are terms that don't count,
    if the thoughts above are on point
    and the love shared
    is honest, kind and pure.

    Stereotypes(4).

    Dowry is unfair and so is alimony.

    It doesn't matter

    It doesn't matter
    Where you're from
    Because everyone shares the sun

    It doesn't matter
    Where you reside
    Because everyone may have cried

    It doesn't matter
    Where you began
    Because everyone may need a hand

    It doesn't matter
    Where you hail
    Because everyone's voice can wail

    It doesn't matter
    Who you may be
    Because everyone should be free

    It doesn't matter
    What you may do
    Because everyone has felt blue

    It doesn't matter
    What people think
    Because everyone deserves a wink

    It doesn't matter
    To me one bit
    Because everyone has their own wit

    It doesn't matter

    Stop Raping Us

    Every two Minutes in America
    A woman is raped
    A sad unbelievable fact.

    Imagine if every 2 minutes in America a man was sodomized by a woman...

    Would it then be on the media?
    Would those females go to prison
    Unlike the men who rape women?
    ©dreamersneverlearn

  • dreamersneverlearn 11w

    Boys will be boys

    A man who was accused of raping over 2 dozen women was released from prison.
    Thanks America,
    more proof that women dont matter in this country.


    The more we fight for equality
    The more hated we become

    Just a note before pride month ends

    Set A: lover
    Set B: all autumns aren't orange




    FICKLE RAINBOWS vs. GOLDEN HEARTS

    All autumns aren’t orange, lover mine
    As you already know
    Unlike complacent summers and springs
    Within convention’s glow

    Autumns are sepia, ochre and crimson
    Burnished golden brown
    With dewdrops reflecting rainbows
    Under society’s frown

    There’s stardust and blazing freedom
    In a kohl heavy eye
    Endless bravery on your scarred sternum
    Saying you refused to lie

    The rainbow flags cover streets
    For the span of June
    While the next eleven months
    In the dust, they spoon

    But while the flags might come and go
    My heart will stay true
    All my autumns, springs, summers and winters
    Are for the love that we grew
