My sister,you are not defined by society. 

Please, you do NOT  need a man to make you happy. 

You are not a property to be owned, sold or inherited

Your life does NOT start and end in marraige 

You are more than what you can cook and clean… 

For even machines do that

sister, you have a soul within you

Please, you have desires,apirations,wants and opinions,voice them

You are not the size of your breasts or lenght of your skirt

Your life was NOT made for a man’s approval or judgement

You are more than an object of pleasure or gratification… 

For even machines give that

sister,you have tremendous power, own it. 

Please,you have rights, use them;  refuse to be violated! 

You are NOT an accessory or attachment, you are your own person

Your life was NOT made for another’s living

You are more than your waist size, weight or butt size

For even animals have those 

sister, you must never behave as if your life belongs to a man!

Please, do not kill yourself over any man. 

You would never do that, if you knew your worth 

Your life does not revolve around a man. 

You are NOT the moon to his earth. 

For you are your own planet. 

sister, You have a spirit 

You are more than your womb, monthly calendar or fertility

You are not the number of people  you have slept with

You are more than virginity,sexuality, chastity or promiscuity

You are not to be shamed for the same acts men are praised for

For sin and pleasure have no gender. 

Sister, you have a mind of your own, own it! 

Please, think, want,create, invent,study, write, live! You can! 

You are not created just to get married and have children 

Your parents and the cleric LIED if they told you otherwise. 

But yet you are not your degree, IQ or monthly income

For you are only who you make yourself to be.
