The Girl Child
Oh Woman, Do not shed tears for the unborn child.
Just because it is feminine.
Her innocent face and her smiling lips is
surely a gift from Paradise
Do not you worry on her marriage and on her Jewels.
As that's the Lord has taken to provide.
Shrug aside people’s taunts and tease.
Take it as part of life as the land and the sea.
She will hold your finger and make you smile.
So enjoy her all the while.
She’s a child, a bounty for all you know.
So embrace her hard as this is a short life.
If your heart still craves for the male child
Then don’t you worry.
Your daughters are there to oblige!!
