thoughts from my mind to yours

She is a girl

Don’t clip her wings,

for she wants to fly,

Higher, than the reach of your eyes,

Don’t…

 

Don’t break her courage,

for she dares to dream,

awake from a past full of screams,

Don’t…

 

Don’t put her beneath your notice,

for she is a woman,

a mother , a sister, a daughter, who insists,

on being heard,

Don’t…

 

For as history has shown,

and future will see,

she is beyond grasp,

she is free…

 

She will learn what there is to learn,

and she will fly in clear the blue skies,

She will rise after each fall,

and she will conquer all that lies,

in her path…

 

She will not stay under your oppression,

but please do not torture her with your brutality,

for she is stronger than you will ever know,

but set her free, in the name of humanity,

for she is a girl, and she can do everything,

that can possibly be.

This was originally written when the Nigerian girls were kidnapped and it saddens me that they are yet to be freed…Here is the latest story: http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/28/world/africa/boko-haram-missing-explainer/

They are always in my prayers and so are all the girls around the world who are being oppressed just because of their gender. I hope for a better tomorrow.
