While juggling multiple roles, don’t forget you are important too. Make yourself a priority because no one else will with #KhayaalRakhna
In the darkness of thoughts
The inner battles that I fought
The world has emerged from incessant crisis
My deep thoughts are in a state of metamorphosis
I believe, I hope, I deeply desire
That mankind doesn’t objectify my body on fire
Why scan me? Torment me with your aggressive eyes
You succumb my dreams to a bucket of lies
Your negative flames are multiplying & spreading in every corner of this country
Burning my inner hopes and poisoning my soulful tree
I can still hear voices of the poor infant, Nirbhaya, the old woman, the poor woman and the less fortunate
All tied up with this universal thought of blaming fate
Why rape? Why rape? Why rape?
The world wasn’t that horrendous even with dinosaurs or apes
Why mankind has put itself to sheer shame
All the laws, policies and systems has turned deaf and lame
