International Day of the Girl Child - 11/10/18



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!
