Sometimes when I look around the shit, I wish I were a guy, when my dad thinks I shouldn’t go out at late I wish I were a boy, when I hear about the rape cases I wish I weren’t a woman. When I cry out of pain and bleed for a week every month, I wish I weren’t a woman, when I see a woman in pain while delivering a child , I wish I were a guy, when people think I shouldn’t work and sit home and cook I wish I weren’t born as a girl. But when I look within and see the strength I have I am proud of myself. When I see that I can love like nobody can I feel proud, when I realize I can forgive easily that I can sacrifice my life for someone’s happiness, when I see I can run my office and house amazingly I feel proud. I feel proud when I see sons being closer to their mothers.
I know what love is, I know what a heart break is, I know what it is to shatter but what I know the most is how to dust myself up, smile and walk and never lose hope. Even if I meet 100 wrong people I have the faith that the right one exists. Yes I cry, I laugh like a kid and shop like crazy yes I read fairy tales not because they sound good but because I am naturally inclined towards things that teach me hope and faith . I am inclined towards happiness and love.
This women’s day I aint at the receiving end I am at the giving end. I love the men in my life. Thank you for being there by me when I need you, thank you for pampering me when I ask you. Thank you for considering me equal and for those who consider me a level below, thank you because you give me the strength to prove you wrong with each passing day. I don’t fight any sex I fight against the wrong belief.
Holy Cow I don’t need a day to tell to the world that it can’t function without me. Celebrate women’s day by doing something that every woman does effortlessly, Love everyone even those who don’t value you not because you need them but because you a bigger person than them.
As the song goes
Do you think I’d crumble
Did you think I’d lay down and die?
Oh no, not I. I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love
I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give and I’ll survive
– I will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
