Red

Red,
The colour that unites everyone.
Red,
The colour that gives meaning to every women.
Red,
The colour that transforms girl to women.
Red,
The colour that bleeds through them.
Red,
The colour that makes them strong inspite up all the cramps they get.

Red,
The colour that stops them to open their wings,
Stupid superstitious customs, behind that game.
Although, there are many people,
Who won that game.
Inspite of all the chains, clenched them tightly.
They won that game.

Red, gives them strength to fly.
Fly,
Up above the sky,
Where there are no boundations.
Fly,
Up above the sky,
Where there are no chains, that clenched them.

Red,
The colour of their lips,
Which gives sheer glow to their face.
Strength to empower their power.
Red,
The colour which unites everyone,
Is the reason for our seperation too.

This patriarchal society,
Wanted us to be down and down.
They can’t see them to fly.
They can’t see them to rise.

But, Oh My Dear,
This world is changing so fast.
The era of mobilization is spreading so fast.
Chains that you used them to clench us,
Is the key to our success.
Is the key to our success.
