Hymn of a Girl

Someday I wish

I were a boy,

galvanising about the streets

all on my own

Enjoying the pleasures of life

with all the freedom bestowed.

Not having to be told to be back before dark

Not having to be told to learn to cook, be calm, quiet and gentle

And all the nuances of being a girl that follows.

I wish for a world

were boys and girls are treated equal

in all spheres of life

not just in mere words

but in the actual sense!!
