Braced with the laws of this Indian society
I have a right to vocalize my pinned anxiety

Nevertheless, he looked me up with his eyes
I’ll put allegations against him with all those wandering lies

I own the privilege to cross the road with a green signal onto
but if I found you passing over my path I’ll definitely sue you

You’re a boy strong though
Alone you are enough, I need laws to go

No laws are meant to be yours
I’m the one who owns all the laws, which still obscure

You suffer agony but no one cares
Suffered by misogyny, still suppressed

Men are dogs, Society’s thought
Loyal by heart if positively caught

Stunning poetry by Urooma Niyaz
