The girl child! the girl child!
I am a girl, I am a girl,
I can do anything, I can be anything
Oh how beautiful I am, oh how i am powerful,
I need education society and not marriage,
I need protection my dear love ones not pampering
Above all I need security and love,
I do not need your sympathy, I need you to feel my pain, give me empathy.
As a girl child, I am vulnerable but can be strong
I change the world with my words of love
I need your support not mockery,
Make me strong and powerful,
I am meek and intelligent, teach me tenderness, teach me love,
I need to be respected not abuse, I need care and attention as the girl child.
I am a girl child, I do not want a drop out from school,
I do not want early marriage,
I do not want abductions,
I do not want pity!
I want to be love, I want to be respected, I want to be protected, and I want security.
This makes me the girl child!
