She walks, talks and acts,
Just like everyone else,
Rites don’t make her different or oppressed.
She lives the way she chooses,
Just like-us-the rest,
Though the body is fully covered, her mind’s not suppressed.
See, she aimed at higher studies,
Craving knowledge through education,
Was married at her will; not without her permission.
She’s not scared to raise her voice,
But you can still hear her,
And when she doesn’t speak, her intentions are clearer.
She is fully independent,
Unlike what anybody says,
Neither weak nor caged, as media often portrays.
Believe me when I say,
We’re not all the same,
There’s more to us than just the looks and the name.
