The ‘Rant’

This may offend you; make you angry or sad… I don’t know. But I do not believe that society will ever treat two human beings equally; something or the other will be found that will be used to discriminate, control and discourage. Gender, race, caste, money are just tools used for these. If these differentiations cease to exist, new ones will be found. I write this as a woman…albeit privileged and fortunate enough to be born in a particular kind of a family…

 

I am me

The whole me

Each part of me is mine

Mine alone to dine, wine

and bed

No God, no devil

I am just me

 

I am me

The fat on my belly is me

The scar on my nose is me

That bald head of a year back is me

The tears in my eye, the loud laugh is me

I change as you do change,

With time, But I will not be the bird in a cage

 

I don’t care if they care for me

But control you can’t me

I don’t care if ‘they’ are ‘bad’

But I will do what is ‘bad’

Oh! the dress I wear is to low or short or tight

But for that right, I will put up a fight

 

I am me

Each part of me is mine

Mine alone to dine, wine

and bed

No God, no devil

I am just me

 

I don’t care what ‘they’ say

Come what the hell may

I will be me

I will be me
