If I Were A Boy

If I Were A Boy

1 min 331 1 min 331

I can’t cry

I can’t smile

I can’t feel pain because I’m supposed to be strong

And after that, I’m always wrong.


I have to excel in everything

I have to fake caring

I have to fake being happy

Because I can’t be what I want to be!


I have to wish and pray for joy,

Would I have to do this if I were a boy?

Would I have to sit and cook for a family unwillingly?

Or could I have lived happily?


Could I have had ‘fun’ and not been blamed?

Would things have been the same?

If I were a boy, it could have

But I am not and I am glad.


A woman is who is strong and smart,

A woman is who truly tries hard

A woman is who can handle pain,

A woman is who has fire in her veins.


She has bravery and she has strength,

She has love and hence,

I am glad I am a woman

Because I am someone who CAN DO IT.
