Don’t expect me to apologize,
Or saying once but thinking thrice,
Coz I am a human, I may not be wise,
But I am a woman
And I am a woman and I can’t be sorry for that.
I may not know what you do,
Or may not know as much as you.
But come on, it’s true,
And you know it too.
You know it, I can learn if I want to do that.
You may be a man, maybe strong.
Your powers can be thick, hard, long.
And I accept that I can be wrong.
But you know, being a woman,
That being a woman is not a part of that.
If you know I do something better,
Then appreciate it and cater.
Coz I am no buffet or platter,
That you may choose what you like.
You may choose and leave the rest, just like that.
Knowing something or knowing not,
Isn’t a thing your genetics caught.
Man, you are right, but I am not.
Coz I am a woman?
I am a woman and I can’t be sorry for that.
Many a time, females are expected to step down or apologize though they are right, just because they are a woman and should have lesser egos, a lesser sense of self may be even lesser self-esteem. Sometimes such expectations come from people who are so close to us. But being a woman is not part of being wrong. So if I do wrong, make me apologize. But not because the one who is wrong is not a woman.
