Yes, I am proud to be a daughter

This post is a special dedication to every girl/lady/woman who is a daughter, and not just a daughter but a special daughter of God.

Since the drop of existence I am asked,
Since the check I am meant to be masked,
Since the determination in the flask,
A doubt remains always and they assign the task..

Sometimes successful but the other times I embrace the world,
Every moment I am questioned and named family’s Respect,
What freedom means to me is nothing means to the world,
What I want to live as, is always a disregard..

I manage, I exist, though in barriers and those worded arms,
They scare me about the relevance still sound so irrelevant,
I am not a show piece, I am not a mere creature,
Leave me alone, don’t name me a social stigma..

That proud collar and Those million dollar smiles I bring,
Those trophies, Those certificates, Those currency within,
Goes to the same cupboard of narrow mindedness,
When they come to know, a girl, Just because..

They say you are not secure then teach me to protect,
They say you are unsafe then teach to me fight,
They disown me for no fault of mine,
Is this the day why every ladder I climbed?

We know that thoughts become words and words actions,
We know actions and change come from our home,
So today if you have or are that beautiful confident girl,
Stand out for yourself, say, “I am way too strong.”

Today in this civilized society where we all know that most of us are educated, the real education comes only when we open our minds, fight for our rights, teach our girls that they are no way of disrespect to them and build self confidence in them. We say charity begins at our home so not in the name of charity but even if you want to feel a bit responsible about yourself tell your daughter you love them, you are proud of them and whatever they have done in their life is not wasted. Also as a daughter if you are reading this, as girl/lady/woman if you are reading this, be proud of yourself because no one can ever discourage you or make you feel bad till you know that you were meant to be.

    Ashu,

    I love the way you think. We don't have to be modern or western this is time to be revolutionary. It is not just a poem, just a message.. it is something we should not even think but simply follow.

    If we sit and wait for the right time, it might not come but the time is now and here and now we should change..

    Lets be the revolution.

    Ashu,
    Each sentence is so purely true.
    You own perfection.
    I completely loved it. God bless you.
    #Respect.

    Very thought provoking !

  13. Rutaba Tariq December 27, 2012 @ 6:55 pm

    Talk about a gorgeously embedded message within even beautiful words.
    You're right about 'change' coming from our own houses, within minds.

    'Aiwayn Rooz Shaytaan Naal Lardaan
    Kadee Nafs Apnay Naal Larrya Ee Nai'
    We fight the devil daily, but we never fight our own nerves/conscious. (rough translation).
    When we won't fight ourselves , how will we improve?

    Incredibly written and I can only give you my prayers. πŸ™‚
    God bless.

    If only more people felt like you, The daughter, the girl could be more of what she truly is capable of.

    Time has changed but people's mentality hasn't. At sometime or the other, when such happenings happen people tend to think that it's all girls' fault. I don't know why. Only if they widen their minds.

    Just loved your post Ashu. Lots of respect for you. πŸ™‚

  18. Shiuli December 28, 2012 @ 2:23 pm
