I want to known

She was walking past the road,

With the dressing style of her own;

She had ethos of hers,

For which she was till date unknown;

She was the one, who wasn't allowed to live freely,

And lived as per the wishes of him;

She was the one, who had killed her dreams before,

With the dagger of her kin.

 

"Oh look at her ", said the mocking and disgracing crowd;

They all stood with their open eyes closed; 

They said:
"Isn't she the one, the cause of all undone,

The one very inept;

The one who brings the rest discomfort,

The one who is always unkept."

 

The excruciated women now turned back and answered:

"Yes! It is me!
And it is something I am proud to be;

It is me, who has brains of her own;

It is me, and my way to live;

It is me, and now-

I WANT TO BE KNOW.

You didn't let me live the way I wanted to,

You never let my thoughts come out;

You never gave me freedom of my own,

And you always considered me a lout;"

 

By now the flock was left with their mouths shut;

This time they realised their mistake;

They figured out that they had been killing souls;

They realised how many of her they had defamed;

 

She once again resumed her tongue, 

And told them-

" I am afraid no more;

Not afraid of anything what you say,

No more I am an introvert,

And from now on,

I WILL BE KNOWN "
