Girl Child Poem: She Is

 


Source: The Guardian Nigeria


She is a woman

Trapped in a phrase

Determined by her body size

She is a girl

Called a child

A value in her prime

She is brown

She is white

She is all shades of human skin

Somewhere, she is treated like royalty

Somewhere, an object of rape and maltreatment

Threatened to keep her lips sealed

While going through hell and high water

Yet, like a phoenix she will rise

Even in the stench of odds and deafening doubts

Inspired by her strength

Supported by good hearts

Like Maya Angelou,

She will spring a voice out of her silence

Like Helen Keller,

She will turn her scars into masterpieces

She is a woman

Trapped in a phrase

Determined by her body size

She is a girl

Called a child
