She was so young and naive ,
A brave and reckless soul .
They said she was a good girl ,
They said she was obedient
They said she was careful
They said she was never angry .
She never voiced her opinion ,
For she feared the lose of ‘good girl’ tag.
She never had any choices ,
For she feared the lose of ‘obedient’ tag .
She never dared to jump out of the box,
For she feared the lose of ‘careful’ tag .
She suppressed her anger all times .
Neither she wore a dress she liked-
Nor she studied a subject she liked.
Neither she choose her job-
Nor she choose her husband .
Neither was she happy with job-
Nor was she happy with her husband .
Neither she complained about her job-
Nor about her husband.
She never lived a day
She died every second in a day .
Many a times, the simple tag “good girl” makes our kids suppressive rather than being brave . They work hard to fit into those tags and ultimately never live their lives . To all girls around me , come out from the box and live your life . Your life, your decisions .
