I am a woman
Always suppressed in this society of men

I support everything
From my home to family
It all depends on me
I’m the pillar that keeps it up

I always end up suffering the consequences
From femencides to honor killings
I face it all

This is my identity
A woman who gives to the world
But her reward is abuse
I question this treatment
I ask why I get such treatment
I beg of you to stop it

No one heeds me
No one stops the abuse

My punishment for being a woman in the society
Is to suffer and continue to suffer
I keep bearing this pain and suffering

Out of my emotions
Of fear or love
I do not know which

Bearing the abuse
Facing everything
I am a woman
Always suppressed in the society of men

I am a woman
Please do not abuse me
Please respect me
I am a woman
