Lady, what life wouldn’t have been?
Shrinking as society soars
Blinded by the dark that we’ve seen
Grave injustice negligence roars
Never ending hateful nation
Cessation fueled by ambition
Has been has will same conclusion
May never be strong as 10 men
But I’m bigger in inner strength
Was more creative at age 10
Which can ruin 10 men at length
I may not break a tether
But I’m not just a feather
can’t fight for job at fair weather
Because you’ll beat me with leather
I must aspire to marriage,
so we still remain together,
bound not by love forever
but because I am a feather
Women’s plead lost in space of time
But both genders cannot deny
This is definitely not a victim-less crime
Then why can’t we see eye to eye?
