PRIDE AND PROGENY

Thinking of my life

Getting no-way-out wild

It’s absurd and regrettable

That, I have no life

To be led by my choice

They say, “Be dutious”

Forget freedom, Don’t be odious

We are strict, can’t be lenient

To keep family’s honor

I am confined in a cage of restrictions

Where to resist is out of question

To break all these shackles

I have to be rebellious

But there’s no way out

They have zipped my mouth

I need to ensure my family’s pride

An obedient and a proud daughter

Smiling wide and dying inside
