After All I Am Human

I will stand up for myself and others like me, I will no longer succumb to the pressures of the society

Why should my character be defined by the length of my skirt,

Why can't I also be known for my excellence in sports,

Why am I paid less for the same work as of man,

Just because I am a woman...


Why should I be the caretaker when I can be the breadwinner,

Why should I always be expected to make the dinner,

Why am I expected to always look pleasing and paint my nail,

Just because I am a female...


Why should I depend on a man when I can be independent,

Why can't I make the choice whether to be a pilot or a flight attendant,

Why does not giving up my dream for my family look shady,

Just because I am a lady...


I will stand up for myself and others like me,

I will no longer succumb to the pressures of the society,

In order to make decisions I have my own acumen,

Because after all I am a human...


No one can treat me like a thing or property,

I will fight to gain gender equality,

Stop treating me like I’m inhuman,

Because after all I am a human...
