Be Your Own Feminist!

Today I saw a female bus conductor.
You can be one too,
You know?

You can be one.
Why Not?

Sure you might get odd stares,
And be the subject of the estate’s gossip,
But still,
Why Not?

You’re a woman, yes.
They will cheat you, you say
They are discriminatory, you state
Well, what did you think?
That life would just hand it to you??

Go out there
And grab the bull by the horns
Wait. No. De-horn it!
…Who are you not to be?

So, my sister,
Don’t wait for life’s permission
If God be for you,
And you know what you are gunning for,
Nothing dey shele.
