DON’T LET ME MARRY BILL

In years past the girl child was invisible
Had no future besides marriage
Today, armed with education the girl-child can have a future
Shall not turn to marriage for refuge
Do drugs and early marriage have anything in common?
The girl child, her youth, bearing children and so on..?
Two drinks and I am knocked out
Next thing I know is I have a bump
In his heart, daddy has a lump
And to ‘my husband’ I’m sent out
The girl child needs protection
To see her goals to fruition
Yet marriage leads to destruction
And gives more harm and frustration
As an adolescent girl
As my hormones still swirl
Please do not take advantage of me
Love and protection is my plea
Without these, what will my future be?
If you were in my boat
How would you feel?
For your future you would kill
Because the pain of early marriage is real
To all parents, I appeal
Don’t let me get married to Bill
For marriage, my future will steal
