Girl Child

  • What is wrong with me?
  • Is there something bad you see
  • The moment you know you have a girl
  • Why does your whole world go into a spinning twirl?


  • As I grew and realization dawned, my heart broke
  • Underestimating and me and of me how they spoke
  • I never chose to be what I am
  • Then why do I receive all the blame


  • It was years before I could heal
  • And stand against those who feel
  • Nothing but detest for me because I’m a girl
  • It makes no difference now the drivel they hurl


  • I am a girl and I am proud of who I am
  • I stand for what I believe, there is no sham
  • I have taken steps and proudly moved ahead
  • Against all odds and against all they said
