"You Can Do Better" (Ode to Every Girl Child)

What if you had wings
Would you love to fly?
What if you can fly
How far can you go?

Sitting & waiting for a man to come
Is it all you can do?
You tried & failed
Wouldn't you love to try again?

They 've told you & you believed
That a girl child destiny ends in the kitchen
They told you hardwork is a continuous daily journey
Only fits for the male child shoe

Then, you took in those words, let them feed your mind
Losing your ability & gradual let your dream sink
Now you earger to settle down even at eighteen
Cuz, you assumed that's just everything girl child fate

Yes, marriage is sweet & adorable
But, there is more you can achieve before going in
Don't deprive yourself a golden chance to a better life & self dependent
Self discovery & breaking limits

Hardwork is a journey for all
With no gender difference
So board on, now is the perfect time
You can do far better than a male child

It's just your believe, how far you can see
You can be more than just a house wife
Give yourself to the best of knowledge
Still, choose a field & let your hand be perfect at it

You can be a doctor, a lawyer, even great hair stylist
An engineer, a writer, even a fashion designer
A caterer, a governor, a poet, president, to name but few
Only change your thought & let your mind see possibilities

The world always await the risen of great women
Who can stand the ground & cause the world go round
When they said, what a man can do a woman will do better
It's never an assumption phrase, but a certain truth

So break every limit, do not be mislead
Shut your heart against all odd
But embrace the truth of self made billionaire
Cuz even as a girl child you can breakthrough

N:B; Every girl child need to stand on her feet & draw herself to her full height, say no to early marriage out of fustration or want, make her voice count, there is more to life than settling for the less..
