A girld child is a blessing,
Such a beautiful, fortunate and a priviledged gift from god!
She personifies mother nature,
She is truly a wonder, oh lord!
She loves, she cares,
She nurtures and she dares!
She is pure, she is a pleasure,
She is a precious dimaond, truly rare like a hidden treausre!
A gift so rare not everyone is lucky to have,
But Alas! Those who have her, do not know her worth.
She brings prosperity and happiness since her birth!
She deserves love, protection and affection,
But she is treated like grime, dust and dirt.
She is a princess, spreading love, mirth and joy.
Her smile is sheer magic, isn’t it oh boy!
It can enchant anyone from a squirrel to a dove,
Her words heal and touch soothes, yes indeed! Such is her love!
Her warmth melts the heart and touches the soul.
Her affection is so profound, it gets anyone on a roll!
A girl child is much more than this,
She is a doting daughter, sister, mother and wife.
Her love and compassion is hard to miss,
She is always there for her loved ones, all her life!
Her life is a gift to others, than to her own!
But she is not grumpy or scornful about that.
Her love and attention is always neglected and thrown,
Her desires and likes always avoided flat!
Time and again she is asked..
“Why do you need to study?”
“What good will you render to the world from your education?”
“Stay at home to cook, scrub and to clean the floor so muddy!
Why! But a boy is meant to help progress the nation”
Her aspirations chocked, her desires killed.
Her poked, leaving it pain-filled!
She is treated like a doll, merely a superficial beauty
She is used completely by all, only until she fulfils her duty.
It is time we revolt, give back and fight!
It is time to put all the wrong things right!
Raise your voice, Vocalise your ideas and opinions,
Defend injustice, help the girl child to reach a new pavilion!
Support the girl child, come together people!
Let us all work towards shedding ideas that are feeble.
Help the girl child to grow, progress and succeed,
You have to start it! Yes, You! Come, sow the first seed!
Learn to love, adore, venerate and encourage a girl child.
Teach the world to permanently stop female infanticide!
Boost a girl child’s morale! Give her education.
Let her open and wings and fly to help progress the nation!
Believe in her, tell her how capable and promising she is!
Respect her compromises, sacrifices and acknowledge her worth.
She is the pillar of her family’ strength, she is the one who spreads mirth!
Open your eyes people to celebrate and rejoice her birth!
She is the girl child! She is god’s angel on Earth!
