Celebrating the International Girl Child’s day 2020, Tonto dikeh has posted a poetry by Kuma Sewuese Mary on her instagram page to celebrate herself being a girl child.
I AM A GIRL AND PROUD*
I am a girl and human,
I am so proud and it’s not a crime.
I deserve Every opportunities,
I deserve Education.
I am not just a sexual being as always tagged.
HALT! all forms of early marriage
HALT! all forms of stereotypes
I have a voice in all.
I deserve to be heard,
Listen to my unspoken words,
And when I speak, let the Echo of my voice
Resound in the ears of all.
Create a space for me on all tables,
Or I will create one for myself
I refuse to be tied down by
Traditional and religious sentiments.
I have aspirations and deserve to reach them.
Being a girl is not a curse,
An immeasurable Blessings to all
I have Equal Rights, Equal Voice
And an Equal Future.
Happy International Girl Child day 2020
