Are girls a curse?

Are girls a curse?

Roshani Bastola

I am just a girl and I am not a dismal
If so, then why should I always face a problem?
I just want to live freely in this society
With my passion and dignity.
Is born in the form of female really a curse?
Or, is it just an illusion that keeps society in pause?
Do people forget that they are born from females?
Or, despite knowing, they want to forget?
Walking the road alone after dark is girls’ mistakes
When did this society regard this statement as false?
Why the society calls girls names?
It’s true that girls never get freedom 
Being raped, betrayed and killed are their mistakes
If so, then what kind of a society are we living in?
I can’t change the people’s or society’s mindset
But the things I can do is 
Just watch this sham with all my purity.
