It’s Fridayyyyy ✨
Hope everyone had an amazing week! Mine was very relaxed. I’m trying to get as much rest as I can after my exams. I’m being treated for malaria cause I started showing symptoms but I’ll be alright. How was your week? I’d like to know in the comments!🤍
So I realized that I had never displayed any of my writings on here. I don’t know why, guess it never came to me🤷🏽♀️ and that is why I decided to share one of them with you today.
I wrote this a while back but edited it again this week. I hope you guys like it!
Late afternoon, after I got the news,
I said, “How?”
Many would be happy,
But I thought, “How?”
I looked up to the Heavens
And I cried, “How?”
How do I raise my child in a world full of hate?
How do I tell her that making a public statement about her identity, makes it a case?
How do I tell her that the reward for hardwork is more of condemnation, not praise?
That speaking up against what’s wrong, makes her a snowflake
That women can’t walk around freely, because we’re afraid
To be raped
And then disgraced
That the color of her skin, is the reason she doesn’t have a say
How do I tell her that because she’s female, she gets a lesser pay?
That it’s hard to make friends because everyone’s fake
That social media, would make her hide her face
That the phrase “brother’s keeper”, doesn’t apply in this place
That the world we live in, is truly vain
And that living, is only by God’s grace
That is it guys!
I guess I was in my feelings thinking about my future kids especially my daughters (if I give birth to girls), how would the world be then? Would it still be the same as now? And how would I teach them not to let the world pull them down just because they are females?
I guess we’ll never know until then😂💀
Anyways guys, I hope you like it! Please let me know what your thoughts are in the comments. I’d really really love to read them🤍
Also, a few of my blog friends and I are coming up with something amazing! We’re excited for this so I hope you all would be too!
Okay, I have to go before I spoil anything 😂. Byeeeeee✨
