Woman’s Will, Wings & Quill

BY MAHIMA SHARMA

Because you don’t want it, thus I have to get educated

Because you don’t consider me an equal, thus I have to get educated

Because my dreams need wings, thus I have to get educated

Because I am girl, so I have to get educated.

 

I don’t need to wander, so I have to learn

I wish to be independent, so I have to earn

I have to fight my inner-demons, so I have to learn

I have to be my own provider, so I have to learn

Because I a woman, so I have to learn

 

I have to protest wrong, so I have to get educated

I need to make the law, so I have to learn

I have to be the change, so I have to be educated

Winds of Change call out to me, so I need to yearn

 

Yearn to be the light in the dark

Yearn to be the fire from a spark

A spark that kindles the blaze of change

A spark that gives me no look strange

A spark that may call me a rebel

A light that casts me in a different spell

 

A spell of knowledge that I will be known-by

A spell of wisdom that makes me no-longer shy

A spell of change that honours me for being a woman

A spell of that adds to my identity as a woman

 

And do achieve this magical spell…I need to get educated

Will you honour my will?

No, perhaps you won’t

So I am out with My Wings & My Quill

To take on the World, with my sheer Will

Because I am a Woman, who needs to get educated.
