Free The Girl Child

Free the girl child
Like any other human being
Respect her
Like any other child
Give her full rights,
The rights to education, protection, and self-expression.

Free the girl child
And give her wings to fly
For she is the backbone of the country and a home
Without her presence
Everything is incomplete.

Free the girl child
She is not a retail good nor a slave.
For she is just a human being like you, with feelings.
She can think and discover.

Free the girl child
And give her a book and a pen
Not a man

Take her to school as a learner!
Not to a man’s house as a wife
Decorate her with a school uniform
Not maternity clothes
Power her with dreams of hope
Not wedding flowers at a young age
