Being a woman is challenging

Being a woman is challenging but also a blessing.

I used to walk with pride, but now I can't

Men have turned into thirsty vampires.

Where will we run to because they are supposed

To be our shield and protectors, buy they are monsters.

Brothers, uncles and fathers

have become a disgrace

Woman can't even walk free in the streets because we are scared of being kidnapped, raped, murdered

and tortured like we are animals.

How many deaths must there be for man to stop murdering women and children?

Children can't attend school because they are worried that they will be next

Why must a young woman think about her death

instead of how she is?

Why must a young woman think about her death instead of how she is going to change the world through education?


Being a woman is challenging, but also a blessing.

I used to walk with pride, but now I can't –

men have turned into thirsty vampires.


Whose blood must be spilt for this to be stopped?

Men of South Africa raping, murdering and torturing

is not the way to fix things.

No means no.

Women have rights like you.



Being a woman , is challenging but also a blessing .
