Born as a girl, my life was about to start.
Or as the circumstances say, it was about to change.
Born with the head bowed, they say;
But I stand for my dignity, my pride.
Born as a girl, I was told to be down to earth.
Or they just want me to be stuck to the ground.
Born to be bound in the boundaries, they say;
But they never knew that sky was always my point of view.
Born as a girl, hands always stretched forth to ask, they say.
But they never knew that these are the same hands that build generations.
Born as a girl, I was told to be just a ‘Girl’;
To think twice before I speak; look good for the crowd.
All they never knew was, I had galaxies in my soul.
That I can’t be held between four walls of their rules.
