YES, IAM A GIRL

a poem by Mobani Biswas, India - poetry writer, author, poet

I am a girl, and proud to be one.
I live within restrictions and limits,
but I live, I have learnt to live.
Iam not a free bird, but maybe,
I have learnt to live in a cage.


I am a girl, and proud to be one.
Being a girl has taught me many things,
I have learnt to endure and bear,
I have learnt not to laugh loud and clear,
I have learnt to subdue my tears.


I am a girl, and proud to be one.
I have knowledge, I know my limits.
I have been taught to forgive and forget,
taught to be docile and never complain,
reminded of my limits everyday, lest I forget.


I am a girl, and proud to be one.
I am proud because I have learnt to live life,
I live life with all its restrictions,
I live life with all its limitations.
Not everyone in this world can do that.


I am a girl, and proud to be one.
I have learnt to suffer and to live.
In this world I am an oppressed being,
still I have learnt to keep my head high.
I have learnt to fight and win.
