The Girl Declaration
I was not put on this earth to be invisible
I was not born to be denied
I was not given life only to belong to someone else.
I belong to me
I have a voice and I will use it.
I have dreams unforgettable
I have a name and it is not Anonymous
Or Insignificant or Unworthy
Or waiting anymore to be called.
Some day, they will say this: this was the moment
When the world woke up to my potential
This is the moment I was allowed
To be Astonishing
This is the moment when my rising
No longer scares you
This is the moment when being a girl
Became my strength my sanctuary not my pain
This is the moment when the world
Sees that I am held back by every
Problem and I am key to all solutions
This is the moment when a girl and
a girl and a girl
and 250 million other girls say with voices loud that
This is our moment
This is my moment.
This, yes this
Is the moment
