I Am A Woman - Poem by Komal Kapoor

With two ears to hear and two eyes to see
But unlike a man
I am treated as if I have no identity

I am told how to behave
when I am out of my house
I am told what to wear
to safeguard self from prying eyes of a pervert

My soul is tormented
and my freedom is curbed
It was better if I didn't exist
so that a man could be saved from temptation

Am I an object?
Am I an animal?
Am I a slave?
No No No! ! ! !
I am a woman in all spheres...

    Komal the man who would tell a woman to cover her entire body to avoid perverts is a pervert in himself. An unholy, denigrating, self-righteous, dominating COWARD!
    My heart goes out to every woman who has to endure this; and my disgust for every woman who treats her daughters and sons daughters with disrespect. A wonderful work Komal.
