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!
