Wake up! Wake up! Women
People say women are equal to a male,
Then why by dowry is she on sale?
Why are women killed before birth?
Have you forgotten that;
They are the reason why men are on earth.
Why is she avoided in her family?
She is the one who maintains the harmony.
Why are women sexually abused?
They are not a toy to be used.
Now don't blame a woman for;
Late night parties or their dressing senses.
If the world respected her,
There would have been no offences.
Wake up! Wake up! the women of today,
This world is also meant for you to stay.
Speak against what's wrong, lift your voices,
You too have the liberty to live your choices.
Stop your cry, don't let yourself become weak,
Get your rights and for justice you seek.
This world seems to be a dangerous place,
But you are not a coward;
That this challenges you can't face.
A woman has proved;
She can do everything a male can,
And In the word itself a wo-man bears a 'man'.
