What society, even our loved ones think that a woman needs, and what a woman needs in reality, are completely different things. An evocative poem.
Father, don’t gift me a husband to secure my future
Gift me education to secure my own future
Brother, don’t gift me your strength to save me from evils of world
Gift me confidence to build my own strength and challenge them
Husband, don’t gift me an expensive dinner date
Gift me a helping hand for everyday chores
Society, don’t gift me the definitions of a woman
Gift me space and liberty to define my own self
Don’t just make me feel special for one day
Let me make my life special everyday!
