Inadequate Labels



You have lost the right to be called a man.

You have violated God’s plan.

We pronounce you a male.

You may not skip the bail.

What kind of a despicable being that hunts his daughter with a brick?

Has your mother checked if you are mentally sick?

You have lost your privilege to be called a father,

And we are not missing the fact that your wife couldn’t even bother.

We hereby declare you both guilty.

May you get sentenced to death by drowning in scorching tea.

It is quite sad that till today we are still losing our sisters to fake macho’s brutality.

It is even sadder that a mother has clearly lost her morality.

Lucifer himself wouldn’t convince her to disregard her daughter cries.

Aren’t mothers and daughters supposed to be allies?

Did she seriously sit tight,

And acted as if the current situation is alright?

Did she seriously took part in her tyrant's schemes?

How could she possibly give up on all of her daughter's sleepless nights knitting her dreams?

Delicate youth wasted by the double-edged knife.

The curse of being forced to live a mediocre life.

We can’t imagine the first time he held Ahlam in his embrace.

Did he foresee that he would involve that tiny hand wrapped around his finger in a cold-blooded murder case?


Can we please normalize legal sanity tests before conceiving innocent souls?

We still do not understand why in the world didn’t the wife take those birth controls?

What are we supposed to do to get rid of these inhuman traits for once and for all?

If only one witness dared to make the call.

Then again the witness held up a phone proudly in one hand.

Recording the fading screams while keeping his head in the sand.


It is funny how the society we live in cares about dishing the dirt,

Rather than rinsing the dirt.

I for one, I’m done.

I won’t run,

But I will seek the sun.

I for one can.

I will plan,

And I will execute the ban.

We will implement significant change.

No, it doesn’t matter if the dominant male found it strange.

We will not settle down.

We will transform their felon smile to an imprisoned frown.


We will add value to the provided education.

We will repair this broken nation.


We will eliminate those laws.

Mark our words, we will clip their claws.
