Stop Playing Victim

Image result for picture of empty promises

He had no intention of staying

yet you took ‘no’ as his ‘yes’.

His rejection as his approval

his empty lies as his promises.

His lust as his love

his want as his need.

Because all this time

you weren’t concerned about him

or about what he wanted or

what he was doing to you.

You were concerned about yourself

about what you wanted.

Because you needed him

or maybe you just wanted someone.

You were being selfish

you were thinking about yourself.

Because you were too afraid to be alone.

So how can you blame him

for something, you did to yourself.

How can you blame him for breaking your heart

when you are the reason for your misery

This time, you won’t get the chance to play the victim like you always have.

(In)Human?

Her life isn’t easy,

But then who’s is.

She weeps most days,

Most nights she cries herself to sleep.

A broken heart and a broken bone.

No money no place to go.

A future as dark as Satan’s home

A mind God abandoned long ago.

And her soul?

She left it for scavengers and crows.

You think she’s human

I disagree with you.

Lost Motherhood

Unfinished cup of coffee on the table

Unfinished romance, unfinished love

Unfinished words and unfinished sentences

Unfinished dreams on a hospital bed

Half awake on an unfinished night.

Unfinished sweater that she stopped knitting

Because of an unfinished womb of an unfinished mother

All those things that could never make it.
Unfinished

Consent

She said no.

Then why?

If she said no, then why did he do it?

What made him think that consent is given by saying no.

We as a country are known for our religious and moral values, for our rich heritage, diverse cultures, and traditions that we still follow, well at least the negative ones we do follow. A country where on one hand women have been worshipped as Goddesses and even the Earth has been referred as “Mother Earth” and on the other hand they have and are still being killed even before they could crawl out of their mother’s womb. Where domestic violence is the story of every domestic household. Where women are sexually assaulted, molested and harassed. Where if a girl wears short skirts or comes home late then she’s of questionable character. But what about the man who parties till 3 in the morning and comes home at 5 in an inebriated state. Does anyone ever question his character?

But maybe that’s okay because he is a “Man”, isn’t it?

If a woman is sexually assaulted by a man or a group of men, then her character is questioned not only in our courts but also in our society. Even if she gets justice by our judicial system after being harassed by police and the accused’s solicitor, the society still holds her responsible for everything. They’ll still raise questions as to why was the girl out so late at night but they’ll never question him.

Women are still being forced by their own families and our law enforcement bodies to stay quiet on such matters. Many women are faced with such terrible dilemma.

Our law enforcement bodies have terribly failed at protecting the dignity of women. 

Okay, I won’t complain about equality. I won’t become a feminist and raise slogans against you. I won’t go out for candle march. I won’t even ask you to protect me. I’m staying away from you so can you please do the same. All I’m asking you is to keep your eyes off me. Just that much. NOTHING ELSE. 

Our values and the way our society interprets them never fails to astonish me. We as a society have failed at teaching our boys the basic lesson, i.e. to respect women. Let’s focus on the upbringing of our boys for a change. Let’s question them when they come home late. Let’s teach them the rules and regulations of the society we live in. Let’s  start teaching them that when a woman says NO, she’s not giving her consent. Let’s teach them the basic and the most important thing, the difference between a YES and  NO.

Dilemma

P.S. I”m preparing for an important test that is on 8th of October. So I might not be able to go through your posts or reply to your comments. But I’ll try to spare some time to write everyday. Please be patient with me. I’ll get back to you as soon as practicable.
