Living in a world were a woman is considered
to be an art of work for men and the kitchen
has not only brought down our confidence
but also of the FUTURE. They say the future
is female, so how do you expect the future to be
like when the FUTURE is being killed and abused
each and every time the clock ticks. I am human
I deserve to be treated equally, equal social rights
and opportunities ‘coz I have learnt that my body
is not an art of work for men. I have learnt that I can
do what a man can do and even better ‘coz I’M THE FUTURE.
