I am a girl child
Is it a crime to be one?
This is my father's land
I should go about with freedom
Because I am a girl child,
I should be respected and valued
Because I am a girl child
I should not be molested
Because I am girl child
No other gender should take advantage of me
I have found my voice, I will raise my voice
I should not be forced against my will
I should not be killed because I refused to be harassed
I should not be killed after I have been harassed
I own my body and I have the right to say NO
Why then should I be a victim?
Why should I be forcefully taken?
Why should I cry in pain and silence?
Why must my voice be shut?
Is it because I am a girl child?
I bear the pain and stigma for life
But you walk freely like a man achieved
I am bound with the shackles of regret
But you walk freely with no regret
Only one wish do I have
That Justice must prevail
SAY NO TO #RAPE#❌
