  • [Spoken Words] Someone Grabbed My Chest




    One afternoon a person I know grabbed my chest

    told me to cover it and don't be a showcase


    I dodged his hand moving towards me

    demanded his immediate apology


    But he said sorry because I was angry

    not for invading my body


    He held my back towards him to denotes

    that we're fine but I am not.


    Because it wasn't the joke that is rubbish

    But without my consent, the touch is a wrong choice.


    I choose not to fear

    I shouted to make it clear


    It is never your business

    to comment on my body and be a fashion police


    You may see a woman with burqa or bikini

    or me with a tuxedo or naked in the city

    fat, athletic, or skinny

    from all spectrum of sexuality


    Don't teach us what to wear

    But teach your brain to be aware


    this is my right to express

    and not your chance to oppress
