It’s hard being a girl!

15 Jan 2021

Dearest baby,
As I watch you sleep;
My heart breaks at times;
And I weep silent tears;
Cause in this world sometimes;
It’s hard being a girl;
Nothing you do will seem good enough;
And they will force you to deduce;
that your whole purpose in life revolves;
Around appeasing others;
And appeasing your in -laws;
They will make you feel like;
You are never good enough;
That your dreams are not right;
That your conviction isn’t suitable;
They will make you feel like you don’t matter;
That you don’t deserve to be yourself;
They will judge you for your voice;
They will judge you for your choice;
Remember this then darling,
That your mother has felt like this;
And so did your grandmother before her;
And millions of other women before them;
All have slowly fought back;
All are slowly changing things;
One woman fixing one generation at a time;
Remember this then darling;
That you have to fight;
Slowly but certainly;
Fight for your self;
Fight for your dreams;
Cry if you must but never give up;
For yourself;
And for millions others who will come after you;
Cause in this world sometimes;
It’s hard being a girl.
