Why Should I Get Married?
I learnt marriage is an equal responsibility
To give each other love and life in quality
But I can’t see love anymore
All I perceive is judgmental people and their abrupt snore
They tell me why don't you get married! You are 27!
They say it's time for you to entry this murky den
Why should I get married?
I guess, it is the way the societal drama is carried
To adjust with the social stigma and to play the gender role
To be mother, a wife, a proficient Indian woman – as we were told!
I don't want to get married, I want to adopt a child
Oh that's the way the society gets wild
A single parent – that's not what they want
"May be she is a whore" – further goes their taunt
Guess liberty is just a talk of puberty!
But then I don't care, I will get married for me and not for you
Say what the society I will get this through!
