Just because…

Just because am a girl

That does not mean am any less than you

Just because I look different

It does mean am not human

Just because am a girl

That does not give you the right to walk all over me

Cause I too have a heart

Just like you

I get hurt and burn

Just like you

Just because am a girl

That does not mean

I don’t feel

Just cause am a girl

It does not mean I don’t feel love

Just like you experience first love

I too pass through it

Just like you embrace life

I too treasure it

Just like you break into pieces

When you lose some one

I too sense the pain

Just as you have fears

I too have mine

Just because am a girl

That does not mean

I cry for no reason

But I cry because am hurt

So if I can feel, if I can get Hurt

If I can experience love and pain

If I sense loss and fear

Just like you

Then why do you still overlook me

Am just like you

You still stone me for every mistake

Like you make none

You look at me like an object

Even though we are born the same way

You raise your voice everywhere

But you hush mine, like I have none

You whip me with your words and actions

Thinking am numb and feel none

Death is what we all fear

It’s not what I fear

But I fear the pain when you hurt me

When you make my own turn against me

So when will you see that am no less?

When will you understand that I too want to live?

When will you? When will you?

When will you see that am a girl, a woman

Not an entity for you to rip off

But as much a human as you are………
