I am just a girl

By Mfon Abel Ekene

I am just a girl
I am just in this world
Like everyone I am here
To walk my own path and keep my duties

I am just a girl
I could have been your sister
I could have been your daughter
Why do you want to hurt me? Please tell me why

I am just a girl
I want a smile on my face
I do not want tears on my cheek
Is that too much to ask for? Please tell me

I am just a girl
I have so many dreams
So many purpose to fulfil
Why can’t I be me? Must I be what people want?

I am just a girl
I deserve happiness
Never want bitterness
Is that too much to ask for?

I acted as a man to get work – until I was accused of rape

I should have let go and bled to death, But something refused to let me do it
