I will go out, why should I not?
Is it my safety that makes you say that?
Or are you too blind to see the fact?
Why set boundaries for me when you don't have any?
Why fix a number for my relationships, when you have many?
If I have more than one boyfriend I am branded a slut,
But if you have girlfriends, you are just a harmless flirt
If I get a promotion I have slept with my boss,
But if you get one, you are an able-workhorse.
I am tired of the lakshman-rekhas you put for my safety,
I am done stepping into fires just to prove my loyalty.
It's time I take matters in my own hands,
It's time I show the world who I really am.
I will go out wherever I want,
I will wear what I like, I am tired of being told you can’t.
I am done with your hypocrisy I am done with you all,
I will shatter the glass ceiling, I will make prejudices fall.
I will go out, day or night,
I will do what needs to be done and what is right.
I won't give up my freedom for my safety,
If anything needs to be set right, it's your screwed up morality.
