Social Issues

 Centuries have passed 

Decades and Eras 

Gone by!

Our plight has still remained 

The same !

So where is Development 

And progress?

Every Era called us by

Various names 

From concubines , to what not !

From Harems to Brothels 

Names changed a new 

Not our plight !

We are still given dirty looks 

Respect never known 

Not one understood us 

We all have a story 

Just like anyone out there 

Some were forced here 

Some in the name of poverty 

Some disillusioned and duped !

Each more heart rending than the other !

Ohh!! The Harbingers of Morality !

Tell me which one of you have not come and seen any of us ?

We screamed for centuries!

It all fell on deafened ears !

Stoic souls 

Our plight continues till today !!

Our souls were sold 

Our hearts buried forever 

We are only reduced to 

A priced list of sorts !

Everyone puts a new

Price Tag !!

Alas !! It still continues
