Woman, O Woman
Woman,O Woman; you are a symbol of love and peace,
But we tied you with the rope of evil and injustice.
Woman,O Woman; you wanted to be safe,
But look what we did, we got you raped.
Woman,O Woman; you were the child's first institution,
But we dragged you, into the dark alley's of prostitution.
Woman,O Woman; you gave birth to great kings who are now in their tombs,
But we murdered you right inside your mother's womb.
Woman,O Woman; you gave us hope,you gave us life,
But when you were born, we buried you alive.
Woman,O Woman; you represented Laxmi and Saraswati,
But we torched you alive in the name of Sati.
Woman,O Woman; you are a mother, a wife,a sister and a daughter,
But you are ill treated everywhere, and we are not bothered.
Woman,O Woman; we made you suffer, and still you kept quiet,
And we thought it is our birth right.
Woman,O Woman; you married us for love and glory,
But we married you for your money and dowry.
Woman,O Woman; you took the pain and never complain,
But we ignored you, and thought it was our gain.
Woman,O Woman; we are sorry for what we did,
But, could you forgive us for our dreadful deeds,please?
