Violence Against Women

When a man hits a woman, he forgets

That his hand should be controlled.

As the only weakness men would ever have,

Is demolishing the other gender.

Having a physique doesn’t make you a warrior,

Do you think you are stronger than

a creature generating life in a womb?

When a man hits a woman,

He knew that she can engulf him too

Still, he chose to slaughter her from his power.

The power that was bestowed by a woman too.

A woman who knew that men are equally valuable,

But the “she” should be taken care of.

A flower needs love to bloom,

You can’t cut up its origins beneath the mud,

No man should assume,

any woman deserves clothes wrapped in blood.

A hand when raised on a woman,

Is a hand raised on himself.

A hand when raised on someone,

Shows nothing but a tainted soul, powerless and unloved.
