I am a woman












                                          I am a woman with flesh and blood                    Aasia
                                             not made for your extreme lust
                                            I have emotions, I have dreams                    Majeed
                                           O would it be that you don't forget
                                           that I am also a human just as you
                                                If only my purpose in life
                                              if only my role in the society
                                                    had you realised!
                                                 Desires of thirsty eyes
                                            Parched due to the tears of blood
                                           O would it be that you don't forget
                                            Much do I suffer, I am a woman
                                                  a human, just as you
                                            A graveyard this world would be
                                         without me, do not crush me to death
                                            Walking skeletons you would be
                                               Quest for my soul, so pure
                                                 Why, o why you ignore!

                                                Let us both live and love
                                              try to win my heart, my core
                                                   that is my real grace
                                                 would it be that you are
                                                  Virtuous and sincere
                                                   since I am a woman
                                                   with flesh and blood
