Alas it was time 
Sorrow wouldn’t let her smile
To what they chanted 
And danced for
Deep down in her
Was a dying dream
A vanishing vision
 And a bleeding heart

Her head aches
from the heavy loads
Her leg sores and scars
from the long walks
Her fire burns and knife cuts 
Preparing her for this day 
She’s been told that is where she belongs 
She’s being told not to complain
Not to show pain
Called a tree planted in another’s garden

She wanted what her friends had
but was told no
She wanted to wear the uniforms
She saw them wear
but was told no
She wanted to go to school
but was told no
Always peeped through the curtained window
As she watched them go
Wondered what fate it was

Who is he
He is a stranger
The garden owner
He looks fierce in his smiles
Too old to tend this tree
She’s been told she will go with him
His house will be her home
With time
She will grow to understand

And sent into the dark
Left in the hands of a stranger
That is all she is good for
To start same circle
Same circle that brought her here
And it’s called her destiny 

Hear her inner cry
‘When will I live
The life I love to
When will my dreams draw 
Who will hear my heart
I want to go to school
I want to be educated
I want to be empowered
I want to have a voice
I want to be heard
I want to live my dream'

Help educate a child
Help empower a girl child
Give her a voice today!

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
