Condition of Women in the 21st Century

a poem by Riya Chaudhary

Trees never makes a difference
Animal do not get hurt
It is human who differentiates
When an infant takes birth

Welcome to 21st century where
Rape cases are increasing
Sex ratio is decreasing
Women becoming independent
But facing violence and harassment

We people talk big things
But thinking is small
Show high values outside
But have low mentality after all

Still women continue to face discrimination
Still she is encountering oppression
Still she is fighting for her identification

Despite the fact
She is contributing her part and making proud her Nation
