Stop Harassment, A poem by Monalisa Parida

                                                           STOP HARASSMENT!

                                            Poem composed by Monalisa Parida

Uncle let me go home

I have my schoolwork to do

I have to play with dolls 

My mother might be searching 

My father may be worrying 

My friends waiting at the door

My teachers may query about me 

If I am missed my parents cry

Please, give me a way to go.


Don’t try to eat my flesh, 

Don’t wish you to drink my blood, 

Don’t tear my body, 

Don’t hurt my soul badly. 


I am not a toy 

I am a human being 

I am a girl 

I have my own self-respect 

I won’t let you destroy it.



I am quiet

That doesn’t mean I am vulnerable 

I can’t tolerate it.

I will raise my voice,

Against your harassment. 


O my God protect me,

O humanity kindly save me, 

O my luck just favor me,

I want to live and live long. 


“Live and Let me live “!
