To some, you are the inferior gender

To some, you are the inferior gender

To others you are the subject of abuse, discrimination and ridicule

To most you are the perfect gift to mankind

Some show their displeasure when you are born

They ask why God has brought you into their lives

Don’t let their attitude and displeasure affect you

To most you bring happiness and kindness

You are the equal gender

Your birth is not by accident

We will support you, to combat any act of discrimination and abuse against you

For in you we trust, that there will be a pathway to peace in the world

Happy International Day of the Girl Child
