Poem

A good girl ?? 

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 .
