Be the change you wish to see in this world.

There is so much to talk about and so much to do,

So many things are left undone and I have no idea for whom?

My heart aches for the sufferers and yet all I do is write

But with a hope that one day I’ll get up and fight

For the rights of yours and mine.


Everyday is normal for everyone of us,

You don’t care, I don’t care

And the pain goes on and on.

It’s out there in front of your eyes and yet we call it hidden.

To all the women, you don’t be shy,

Get up and fight for the rights of yours and mine.


I am done depending on others and I am done listening to the lies

Don’t ask them what you have done

Because honestly there is no reason

It’s the truth of the lie.

Come on, you don’t be shy,

Get up and fight for the rights of yours and mine.


It’s so hard to write about their pain

Every time I begin to write

The lines end up becoming a rhyme.

There is an ache that you can’t see

Because I cry without tears in my eyes


I wish there was someone who could get it for real

The damage is done but it’s never too late to feel

The mistakes you did, the lies you told

Undo it with your love and giving them what they deserve

Because if you don’t, you better be ready

To see the anger of the victims who’s stories are yet untold


Oh men and women, you better open your eyes

Be a mirror to yourself and stop spreading the lies

It won’t do any better but worse

I don’t know if you really do it or if it’s a curse

The curse of your devilish selfish act

Which you did to come first when there were only two

You made it a game where you either win or you loose

For centuries we have been loosing

Because you’re always cheating

Be wise, and stop spreading the lies

And now it’s time

To all the women

Get up and don’t be shy

Let’s all get together to fights for the rights of yours and mine.

The author's comments:

I am Shrishti and I am from India, I am a student and a writer. My articles get published in newspaper here in India. And about the above peom, I wrote it when I was 16 but I was never really able to find a better platform until now. I think Teen Ink is a great platform to showcase writing skills which I am very gratefull for. Through my poem here I am trying to deliver the feeling of women living in a male dominant world.
