There Are Days When I Just Want To Be…An Ordinary Girl

Posted: July 23, 2018

Do you have days when you just want to be that ‘ordinary girl’ and not the ‘strong woman’? You will so relate to this poem.

There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl
Days when I am the girl next door…

One who tilts her head to the sunshine
Who caresses petals tenderly
There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl…

One who loves her hand to be held
Who likes an arm around her waist
There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl…

One who doesn’t worry about the repercussions
Who doesn’t fret over tomorrow
There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl…

One who wants sweet nothings to be whispered in her ear
Who wants someone to flirt with her
There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl…

One who can put her feet up after work
Who needn’t worry about dinner every night
There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl…

One who is loved
Emotionally, mentally, physically & spiritually
There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl…

One who can bawl her lungs out
Who won’t be ridiculed for doing so
There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl…

One who can get through the day without thinking a thousand thoughts
Who can sleep the moment she closes her eyes
There are days when I’m just an ordinary girl…

One who doesn’t have to wish for all of the above
Who doesn’t have to be feisty, independent and strong all the while
There are days when I wish I could be just an ordinary girl…
