Thank God, it’s a boy

In response to WP Discover challenge: Snapshots

Get inspired by Andrea Jarrell’s post “A Roar for the Ages,” and tell a broad story using a series of short, focused scenes.

Thank God it’s a boy,
For he don’t have to adjust in life
Like the way the girls do.

Thank god it’s a boy,
For he can sleep peacefully and no one will complain
Like how girls get to hear.

Thank god it’s a boy,
For he can be treated with respect and dignity but not
Like how girls get mistreated.

Thank god it’s a boy,
For he don’t have to sit on a dirty toilet seat to pee,
Like how girls have to.

Thank god it’s  a boy,
For he don’t have to listen to the crap the mom-in-law says,
Like how girls have to.

Thank god it’s a boy,
For he can live whatever life he wants to, not
Like how girls get judged for even a single thing.

So Sad it’s a boy,
For he won’t know the joys of
being a daughter, friend, wife
and most importantly, mother,
Like how girls do.
