A woman! A woman did you say?
Yes, a woman that’s what I am
And very proud of being one!
It spares me from being an empty boastful man!
I don’t deny there are many good ones too
But the egoistic selfish ones out number them!
Disrespecting women is their trend
In today’s so called highly developed and cultured society.
They wish to live a happy life by-
Keeping in reins and suppressing their women but-
When it comes to using her to achieve his goal-
He leaves no stones unturned-
Dragging her to places against her wishes
Making a big show of his caring loving nature!
Isn’t it like selling off one’s soul for personal gains?
Will it last long, being founded on ruining someone’s life?
Some can’t bear to see women progressing and-
Moving ahead on par with them
Even surpassing them quite often!
The demon in him then raises its head
To choke the life out of her.
How dare she succeeds and moves on
While he sinks in disgraceful failures!
Some of them believe
Enjoying the fruit of success and progress is their birthright
Women are meant to suffer the brunt of all failures, miseries
He loves to blame her for all his shortcomings
What all he could have done and achieved only if he were on his own-
He talks of great things with littleness in his heart and mind!
Oh, what an awesome world it is-
So full of some such hypocrites lording in it!
