I won't be your son

Source
She was born with a flaw,

a flaw of being feminine.

Innocent ignorant mind 

until saw her parents crying,

For they wanted a boy after her sister Penelope,

Who'll be their solitary strength,

their one and only hope.

She couldn't resist the tears of mother,

Impetuously rushed  to them and uttered,

"I won't say I'd be your son as that'd be a cliche;

Also, I don't want to be one.

Rather I shall be a daughter; 

who's pluckier than every son,

Turning your adversity into ecstasy, 

Changing perceptions of  everyone."


This post is for all the females out there. I am proud of being one and you should be too. People need to understand that daughters are no less than sons. We'll always be there, supporting our parents no matter what comes. And I really feel sorry for the parents who still feel blue when daughters are born. Because they are ignorant of the fact that how lucky they are for having angels in their lives.

  2. Well written... A couple of my friends were blessed with daughters over the last few months. And I told both of them the same thing from my experience: a daughter is the best thing that can happen to any man.

  3. Beautifully expressed, Deeshani. :)

    'You are not my daughter, you are my son...' Parents do not realise that with compliments such as these, they are actually undermining the importance of daughters.

    Best wishes, Ragini

  4. I was lucky that my mother always only wanted daughters and my father never minded if he didn't have a son. In fact, I am quite certain my father was proud of us.

  7. How beautifully expressed Deeshani.. we being solely 2 daughters in our family, I can totally relate to this one. And yes, being born as a girl is the ultimate strength. More power to us & our feminism! Hugs :*

  8. Nice one Deeshani. I wish all those anti feminists out there would read it. I wish all those fathers who get the sex test done for the baby would read it. Such thoughts need to keep resonating around for change to happen. Nice one Deeshani :)

  10. A very touching and powerful poem, Deeshani. I feel grateful to be born in a family where daughters are valued as much as sons. However, it feels horrible when I see that there are so many families who value sons more than daughters. Hope this changes! :\
