A mishmash of spirituality, human relationship, adult and children's literature, news analyses and anti-road-rage tirades

I’m a girl

I’m neither greater nor equal.

I’m unique.

I’m a girl.


I’m neither stronger nor feeble.

I’m just me.

I’m a girl.


I need neither pity nor overprotection.

I only need understanding.

I’m a girl.


I deserve neither infanticide nor pampering.

I need only care.

I’m a girl.


Do not treat me as a boy.

Do not identify me with a boy.

I’m a girl.
