thoughts from my mind to yours

For she is a girl…


Don’t clip her wings,

for she wants to fly,

Higher, than the reach of your eyes,


Don’t break her courage,

for she dares to dream,

awake from a past full of screams,


Don’t put her beneath your notice,

for she is a woman,

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

on being heard,


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 the clear 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,

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.

  14. The fact is, I’m not a woman to understand what their struggle and suffering is. I don’t know what being a woman is to be like? But what I know is living as a man is lot more easier than a woman. If a man and woman get into any situation in their life, it would be easier for man to overcome it than a woman. Why?..
