Do we not have same head?
Same soul, heart,mind,and body
Do we not feel as you feel?
Do we not feel same pain as you feel?
When your woman is behold by another man

Do we not have same blood?
Running through our veins
Do we not feel the same agony?
When a woman watched her man
with another woman

Do we not bleed if you cut us?
Do we not die if you poison us?
Do we not care if you care more?
Do we not love if you love us?
Do we not love if you hate us?
Do we not share same tears with pains?
Then, who says it's a men's world
Nor dare to condemn the woman
In these acts we both are involve in.


A bent tree can bears fruits
A cripple sheep is also a mammal
Where do I run to?
Who do I link up with?
Who can I lean on?
When my house isn't a home.

I feel the claws of stigmatization
I can feel the steaming heat
My heart's heavy like sinking stone
The weight's on my shoulder

I am brightly blind
What's love if we are not loved?
Why grilling us in sorrow?
For we didn't made ourselves

What's a society without hope?
Disability is not our making
For the sense of human we have
For we need just a chance.
