NEW LIFE

newlife

She wants a new life,

She is tired of the old

 

Over 20 years,

Full of bitter memories

 

Home,

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
