When the birth of a woman is feared

I’ve liked the word 

‘Woman’

Much like 

‘Man’ is preferred 

To being called a ‘Boy’

But it’s confusing 

When one is degraded;

We know which one

.

When an illiterate man fears 

The birth of a woman 

It is not because

Women are weak

Oh dear me, no.

It is because

He is afraid

Of other men 

Like him;

Who spend their lives 

Degrading women.

They cannot bear to see

Those actions

Reciprocated.

He fears his species.

.

When an illiterate man fears

The birth of a woman

It is not because 

women are weak,

Oh dear me, no.

He has been raised

That way

By a woman.

She failed her species.

.

When a society fears

The birth of a woman 

It is not because 

Women are weak,

Oh dear me, no.

They have forgotten 

Their origin

They disrespect 

Divine decisions.

Then they have 

Nerve to ask

‘Why is the world

Such a dark place?’

Excuse me,

You’re suffocating 

The light.
