girls who talk loud
and laugh freely are a threat,
to those who cant hear voices
of women over theirs.

girls who make their own choices
who dont wait for the clock
to strike in favour and who build
their own fate are threat,
for the believers of luck
and who worship the hands of clock.

girls who dance out
their emotions and speak
through their actions
are a threat, to the chains
which want to bind
their feet and tongue.

girls who despite being
chained down, melt and mould
them into wings of metal
and fly high are a threat,
to the clouds of patriarhy .

girls who embrace their flaws
and enhance their features
are a threat, and challenge
the judgements and opinions,
they are a threat, to those
who want to push girls down
under self loath.

girls who love themselves
before letting anyone else do it,
who fall, get wounded,
and are pushed to death,
but always come back stronger
are a threat, a threat to the egos
which prey upon vulnerable souls ,
devouring fame wherever they can.

girls who voice their opinions,
in the ears that deny
the presence of the voices
raised against them
are a threat, to the barriers.
or the girls who see not
clothes but confidence
and achievements
as their garb, are a threat,
to the materialistic world.

girls who don’t see
their strectch marks,
their breakouts,
their pigmentation or
any feature of their bodies
as obstacles but a mark
of their uniqueness
are a threat, to those
who prefer putting humanity
in sections and stratas.

girls who break the queue,
along with the stereotypes ,
who choose to be themselves
are a threat. A threat world knows
will show up eventually
and blow off their ill course
of restricted growth, of complacency,
a threat that will come and rise
as a blessing to humanity and
take it to greater heights.

    Woman, and yes, girls, have the power to make change. A society who doesn’t embrace those gifts is stunted. Excellent write.
