Blood all over her body,
Vagina bleeding, she was naked alone
Walking through the street, trying to breathe,
All those bodies, staring at her
But none help.
In the dark sky,
She had nowhere to go all along.
Ashamed of her impurity
Having a million questions but not knowing what to do.
She went home,
Realizing there's no humanity left in the world
She cried in her mothers' lap for hours
But they said it was her fault.
Yes, it was her fault
She was out at night, alone
To get some medicine for her father in pain
Wearing her regular dress, she went to the medical store
On her way, she passed by some men
And to them, she smiled.
