Who are we?
The pretty, the weaklings, the brides
The maids, the unwanted flies
Unable to work
Unable to earn
The good-for-nothing shortcoming, female
Who really are we?
Under the layers of stereotypical blankets…
Under the layers of scathing wrapping…
We are strong.
The preservers of the human race
The independent, unconventional beings with the ability to change the world
The amazing leaders and determined existences
We must uncover ourselves,
Shed all the stereotypical blankets and wrapping
And defy the beliefs of society,
Creating an overdue change so impactful,
That it’s resonance sustains past the shoreline, FOREVER.
We must show the world that we are no less, if not more than a man
And we must do this TOGETHER. By: Shivi Anand.
