I am a girl

Lovely African girl

Lovely African girl

I am a girl;
But I don’t see what any boy can do
That I cannot do;
What any boy can do, I can also do;
And if a woman cannot do it,
It cannot be done;
I am a girl,
But that does not mean
I’ll do all the work at home alone
While my brothers fold their arms
And loiter around;
It won’t work that way.
I am a girl
But I have a right to education
Like my brothers;
I am a girl;
But look forward to a great future too,
Like my brothers.
Why do you want me to think differently
Because I am a girl?
Why do you want me to sell myself short
Because I am a girl?
That is not correct and I want you
To get it clearly.
