i just want to be free

i want to be able to run and scream

but i’m a she

and a she cannot be free

we don’t have much rights in this society

we’re not appreciated

we’re killed, humiliated

and rarely defended

but we shall rise

and we shall rule

and i shall become a legend all women will look up to

because since the day i was born

i have been kept silent

i never had a voice

always so nice

always so quiet

but i have been planning

planning an escape
