Happy 'whatever' day!

Impressions are made irrespective of gender! Histories are made irrespective of 'him' or 'her'!

Often branded a feminist,
I wonder what is wrong in being aware of my rights.
Often asked to keep quiet,
I wonder what is wrong in speaking my mind.
Often told i don't know enough,
I wonder what is wrong in wanting to know more.
Often accused of being dominating,
I wonder what is wrong in knowing what you want.
Often labeled as not being strong,
I wonder what is wrong in tackling a moment with tears.
Often pushed aside in decisions,
I wonder what is wrong in questioning the norm.
Often blamed for being not good enough,
I wonder what is wrong in not being so normal.
Often not wanted in this world,
I wonder what in wrong in being born as me!

Often told by the world we don't belong here,
I wonder what is wrong in believing that we can change that world!

The girl child needs no day to believe it is her life, her world, her existence!
Happy 'whatever' day!
