Why I have to be an empress with a crown?
Being a girl was not my choice
But,remaining single is what I rejoice
Being single is a destiny for some
Then, why do you stare at me with a glum?
I was emboldened to choose the righteous path
Then,why my decisions ought to incur your wrath?
Not meant to placate is the idea you spread
Then, why getting married is considered the only means to propel ahead?
Just like you maintaining positivity incessantly seems a constant battle
Then, why brandish women like me with negativity; an encumbrance to hold on to my mantle?
Freedom is my birth right that drives me in the dark
Then, why my resolve to strive for my ambition makes me enfeeble by your sententious remark?
Just like you I sail on tempestuous sea of emotions
Then, why blame my hormones for my inner tribulation?
I may have a waspish tongue which can hurt
But,I dismiss your opinion with a perfunctory smile and reply so curt
I will continue to globetrot with unbridled courage
And never allow the winds of doubt to discourage
I condemn your priggish attitude
And continue to deal my challenges with fortitude
In this single status, I find my strength to conquer any tide
Don’t demean me as I continue to walk with a purposeful stride
Unveiling my passions by going to any length
Is what I will continue to endeavor with my full strength.
