that’s the trouble with being a woman:

you are woman,

more than man.

more color,

more desire,

more responsible – for the kids you raise,

and the attacks you incite,

more guilty – for the husbands that stray

and the attacks you incite.

that’s the trouble with being woman:

you have more aspirations,

you demand more equality,

you want more respect.

have you considered being

more modest?

that’s indeed the trouble with

being woman –

you carry half the sky,

and more than your half

of the earth.

This one is in the face of men who resort to attacking innocent women with acid and its violent corrosion of  their lives. It’s an unforgivable crime.
