The journey so far (4)
Written by Ayo Oladiran
Girls voices initiative has helped me in more ways than I can count and beyond the whole teaching me to be a good leader and how to work with a team , the experience from the exposure I got through GVI has helped me to see things through another eye and it had also helped me in putting out a great poetic piece;
YES AND NO
It is my body and I have a right
To decide if I want it or not
Why then do you still bite ,
When I choose the 'NO' slot ?
Would my voice ever be heard?
Will my will ever count ?
If ever recount my stories
Would there be one where my choice is not interred ?
Listen to my words
Hear my cries
Would you ignore like you've always done
Or to them would you comply?
Yes , everytime we call for a change
To you it still sounds strange
No, you will not for my sake fight
Till the day you will be made to walk my path.
