NO TO GENDER DISCRIMINATION

Out of the Ashes we rise
For the sun that was out that evening
The moon that shone that night
For it came out in all its might
And they flooded the town with light 
As all the vestiges left me of the fight
The fight where I was supposed to be the Knight but I was held tight because of my sex
I lost my place at the table to one of the men
But out of the Ashes we shall rise
For I rose, that day when Bro Akin, that uncle in my neighborhood touched me affectionately, I slapped his hand away and told mummy about it
That year when the boys in my class poked fun at Sandra because she had her first ‘Period’ unprepared in class.
But that day we stood by her, our heads high and confidence higher
We weathered the storm together
Unity and love prevailed over brashness and pride.
And we rose out of the Ashes together.
For when Girls stand together, the predator becomes the captured Prey

Comme tous les vestiges m’ont laissé tombe du combat
Le combat où j’étais supposé être la chevalière mais j’ai été traité de façon différente à cause de mon genre féminin
J’ai perdu mon mérite (ou droit) à la table d’un des hommes.
Mais des cendres nous nous éleverons,
Car lorsque je me suis réveillé, ce jour là, le frère Akin, ce uncle de mon voisin m’a touché de manière affectueuse, et j’ai tape sa main hors de
moi et en ai fais cas à maman
Cette année là les garçons de ma classe ce sont moqués de Sandra parce qu’elle a eu soudainement ses premiers menstrues en classe.
Mais ce jour là nous étions resté près d’elle, tête haute et plus confiant que jamais.
Nous avions surtmonté l’orage ensemble
L’union et l’amour l’ont emporté sur l’impétuosité et l’orgueil.
Et nous nous sommes élevé des cendres ensemble.
Car lorsque les filles s’unissent, le prédateur devient la proie capturée.
