Just Leave Me Alone

by Geetika Sodhi Lohan
(Ghaziabad, India)

I am a woman
Just leave me alone,
If you find me stubborn
Just leave me alone

I walked out of my marriage
Just leave me alone
I got a miscarriage
Just leave me alone

I don't care for the size of my cup
Just leave me alone
I don't know how to do make up
Just leave me alone

I didn't marry a settled man
Just leave me alone
I loved his love and held his hand
Just leave me alone

I never picked a plate in my life
Just leave me alone
I am not a good daughter in law not a good wife
Just leave me alone

I fight for myself
Just leave me alone
There are only books on my shelf
Just leave me alone

Your opinions don't define me
Just leave me alone
Your tricks can't outshine me
Just leave me alone

Just leave me alone
Because I am tired
Because now my brain is no more wired.

I will wear what I want
Just leave me alone
Compromise I just can't
Just leave me alone

I need no one any more
Just leave me alone
I can fund my own trip to the shore
Just leave me alone

To the women who are submissive
Just leave me alone
I am progressive just leave me alone

Iam tired of patriarchy
Just leave me alone
I don't entertain the curious aunty
Just leave me alone

I am who I am
Just leave me alone
I no more give a damn
Just leave me alone
