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;


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.
