Why do you look at my bosom when  I wear that
Why do you give that damn stare?
Why that teasing look when I open my hair?
Why do I need to stay quiet?
Why am I blamed when it’s not my fault?
Why do I have to stay back home after eight?

I’m whatever I want to be.
But first, just another human being.
