If You Only

Made of delicate requisite,
Making their inferiority definite,
Men appetizing.
The weakened species,
Our lives no more delicacies,
Stumbles,
And rumbles,
Fumbles
And wrangles.

A girl they called
Her fate then rolled
Demeaned not bold
And set for scold.

Seen with her man
A girl is underscan
Call her names
But to a man is fame
And a girl gets shame
See the flame!

Men, if only you could
Know that you would
Grant us our mould
Leave us in fair world.

She’s not in any competition
Neither is she for admiration.
A girl…a woman in creation
Needs fair chance in the nation.

Fair representation in constitution ammendment,
Fair representation in parliament,
Fair representation in all approvals.

Man be dared!
Man don’t get scared!

She’s not displacing you!
She’s part of you!

Men, if only you could
Know that you would
Grant us our mould
Leave us in fair world.
