Poetry

I am an Object, Not a Minor Girl

I am an object,

Come and fulfil your physical needs.

I am an object,

I cannot feel pain.

I am an object,

I am a medium to be exploited by the other gender.

I am an object,

You may go brutal with me.

I am an object

I won’t shout, scream or cry for help.

I am an object,

You feel the Sexual satisfaction by exploiting me physical

I am an object,

Just like your little daughter or sister in your home.

I am an object,

Why bother about the mental agony caused by your sexual acts upon me.

I am an object,

Cross all levels of ruthlessness and prove you manhood.

I am an object,

Don’t stop unheard cases of aggravated sexual activities.

I am an object,

I do not have the strong society to take action against you.

I am an object,

Why call me a girl, a minor.

Do you still wonder if I am an object or a human being !

The manner I am being treated today no longer makes me feel as a human-  a minor girl.

Ironically, I am born as a girl in a society which is unable to bring you up properly,

The Heinousness of the man has forced me to consider myself as an inanimate object.

The nature of being sentient as a living person is being forgotten.

I have faced all forms of forced sexual acts.

My tender age too could not act as a restraint.

I have the entire life to live with the trauma of assault, rape and torture.

Pray that I am able to forgive you for your acts,

Expect me to rise higher in life and show you how strong I am.

I am a minor girl, your acts won’t take life from me.

I have stood up to face the insensitive world once again!

In reality, I am a minor girl, not an object.

I am a woman of future.

This is the truth.

  1. A very written poem. It’s disgraceful to think of ourselves as living in an advanced well developed world when the babies, kids, young & old women are sexually abused. Is this a sign of advancement or of a modern world …if so then olden days were much better when females were respected? For no fault of theirs the females are humiliated & male members irrespective of their age usually go scot free & they continue their heinous task of destroying as many females life as they can. In what sort of an advanced world are we living today?
