Rise against the Injustice

Posted July 23, 2017 from India

College life awaits- new dreams, new opportunities & new challenges

Happy enthusiastic & excited were my feelings

But the very first day I stepped out

All I could feel was horrified, scared & ashamed!

Because a group of boys stalked, commented & laughed

They laughed even harder when they saw me vulnerable.

Though they were doing wrong

I got worried and curious;

I was in a dilemma. What wrong had I done to be welcomed like this?

I kept on thinking.. had I worn clothes too short or was the colour too loud?

Had I kept a smile too broad to attract those stinkards?

When I couldn’t get answers, I reached outto my father

He said, “Beta! Rise against such rogues,

Break your silence against such horrors,

And fight like your own saviour!”

And then I decided to let those beasts know that I wouldnot allow them to make me ashamed

For something I haven’t done

For it’s my right to roam whenever & wherever I want

I will not allow them to rattle me;

And most importantly I will fight back by stepping out with more confidence & courage;

I will raise my voice louder to let those criminals know that theycannot stop me from conquering the world!

Dear Safe city,

The world is not a friendly place. There will always be bullies and there will always be people who will try and bring you down. Don't tell them break you. You are beautiful and strong and the sky is the limit. Read hard and show them how intelligent you are. We love you and we want you to succeed in life.

You are already a success so don't mind those who are laughing at you. They are already intimidated by you. 

Stay blessed
