Save Our Sisters

A poem about infanticide of girls...

Many girls lost, many girls missed
Many girls lost, never to be Ms.
Strings of girls, strands of pearls, 
Gone, gone, gone. Pretty, pretty, girls.
A mother's hug, a sister’s laugh, a daughter’s kiss
Lost, lost, lost. Missed, missed, missed.

Many girls lost, many girls missed
Many girls lost, never to be Ms.
Young girls grow up, become young ladies.
But for Indian girls, that’s a big maybe 
Young girls grow up, become young ladies.
But for Chinese girls, that’s a big maybe,

Many girls lost, many girls missed
Many girls lost, never to be Ms.
Run, Run, Run, hide your daughters, 
Run, Run, Run.  Run from the slaughter.
Wake up world, we’ve lost too many sisters.
S.O.S. World, Save our Souls, Save our Sisters.

Comments: In some parts of the world, the three deadliest words are “It’s a girl”.  Girls are killed for being girls. After watching this movie trailer  http://www.itsagirlmovie.com/ , I wrote the poem above.  FEEDBACK WELCOME.

Noel, this went straight to my FAV list. I think everyone should be aware. EVERYONE is not, but you are and I am and so are some. This poem could also be a wake up call for all of us to be aware as there are so many missing girls who never come home. We could all try harder to be aware and do whatever we can to stop them from being abducted in the first place.
