Been there, had that done to me
My friend too.
I spoke out, he didn’t.
Coz the society runs that way.

"Rone nahin mat" was told to him.
Without any explanation asked.
Without any solutions given.
Without any chance.

He was scared.
Of being judged.
Of being ridiculed.
And more of being abused.

Too much in shock to realise
That he was abused.
That he was affected.
That he was the victim here.

On seeing today's statuses
On seeing the many hashtags
On seeing so many confessions
He wanted to shout out "Me Too"!
