messed up dreams in my mind
charred, black soul in my body
catastrophic symphonies in my heart
always missing you guys -

Recently, I saw a video of a woman abusing and threatening the Indian police. Why? Because she had rammed her car into three other cars. And when the police came to her house regarding the issue, she began to verbally abuse them and threaten to undress before them, hence, accuse them of harassment.
This video made me wonder how many men are there in the world who suffer this kind of abuse and domestic violence everyday.
I feel that this is an issue that requires utmost importance. We do so much to celebrate women, we celebrate International Women's Day, candle marches and struggles are organised to seek justice for women. But nothing ever happens for men.
It is not like men are immune to abuse.
Like the title suggests, abuse doesn't discriminate between men and women. So why should we, as a society, discriminate in our support for domestic violence victims?
It is high time we realise the gravity of the situation and encourage men to speak up.
Violence is violence, regardless of whether the victim is male or female.
