Tales of a Proud Aunt

The princess is 17!!!! 

I chose the peacock because she colors everyone’s world


Happy birthday love, may your path always be straight, your hands be blessed and your dreams be as big as your heart.

Chained by my gender, free me!!

 

It feels like my gender dictates my destiny!

As soon as I take my first step, the training begins

How I should walk, talk, dress and behave.

My role in the home is clearly defined

A cook, a cleaner, a caretaker and later a wife and baby maker.

You deform me in the name of culture

The mutilation, sterilization and all sorts of initiations.

You treat me like property and gag my voice!

I am not only a WOMAN; I am just as HUMAN

I am intelligent, a leader, a provider so the glass ceiling must crush.

I am more than the stereotype my gender dictates, FREE ME!!
