She wants a new life,

She is tired of the old


Over 20 years,

Full of bitter memories



Has never quite felt like home


She needs to be away,

So that she can be happy


She wants a new life,

So that she can laugh and smile


She lives surrounded,

By people who want to control her


She has been raised not to think about herself,

But how actions she takes will reflect on her parents


She is surrounded by sexists,

Who make her feel like she is inferior


Like a being who lacks dignity,

When she is around a man


The more she waits to get away,

The angrier she gets


So every day she prays,

That things will get better,

That one day she will be able to think about herself,

That one day she will get to grow and flourish
