Beauty with thorns! ROSE🌹

Beauty with many thorns
A heart as fierce as a lion protecting its cub
Having an unimaginable back up
An unfathomable protection
Beauty plus thorns!

Can I be touched?
No, I'm a beauty with thorns
Thorns in place to fight against wrongs
Thorns in place like shields for every storm

After being cut, cut into places not wanted, not expected !
I see my sisters and daughters taking up and fighting on
The voice I raised did not die
My girls were called beauties with thorns

For those that tried to hold me
Those that tried to tame me
My thorns are there to prick and hurt!
I will clear and fight!
I will break chains!
I would say it's a scar that cannot be cleared The scar from my thorns
I promise, you will bleed by a prick
My thorns are sharper than an iron sword

I will fight!
Fight oppressors, liars, fighters and whoever!
My thorns hurt people who try to get close to me!
People who try to touch me
They don't know I'm a beauty with thorns!

Love me and leave me
Admire me but do not touch me!
Do not call me and do not harass me else, I'll prick you!
I'm a beauty with thorns!

Take time to notice me, to respect me, to love me and to care for me!
I deserve attention and care,I cannot fight nature!
Use energy and strength to reference me!
For I am a rose, I cannot be kept!
I am like smoke from a burning house, I cannot be tamed!

In years to come, when I go
I shall leave my thorns for my daughters!
My legacy and my words!

Is my sword not my tongue?
Is it not my actions?

I do not land on my flesh!
My thorns make a base for me
I do not land flat! I land firm!
I am a beauty with thorns!
A body with firmness!
I have a tongue as sharp as sword!
And I have my girls too!
As iron sharpens iron!
Rose fall, but the thorns remain!

Depression, The rise, The climax, The fall!


Depression, The rise, the climax, and the fall!

The rise of the heart
The uncontrolled rate of pressure
Soooo many demands, Just one gender
A mind set up  high enough
A soul reaching out to things ignored
Can we sit still and let the people go in their pace
Rush and rush , until there's a rush to the grave
Judgmental? Hell no!
Rather take a nap

So many souls crying, unheard
So many dreams covered, unfulfilled
So many emotions felt, unnoticed
So much tears left, unseen

In the midst of thousands a few are heard
Leaving the rest unprotected, unloved!
Making them feel the future is not secured
So many souls crying!
Wondering and thinking!what's the point of it all!
I am a gender on my own! not a supporting actress!

 I am a person, fearfully and wonderfully made!
With dreams!innovations! ideas!
But why am I not heard ?
Why am I told to be quiet ?
Do you feel I should end this miserable life of mine?
Do you think the tears would stop if I try?
Do you think I would fight back and conquer?
All the soldiers put up against me in this war!
Life is a war! Can I defeat!
What do you think!
Why for decades! For years!
When do I stand to be recognized!

The Climax, The heart can't take it anymore
The head is full, the pressure is much
What is there in the afterlife?
Contemplation on whether to live or die
What about a long step into paradise?
Do you think this can be cleared?
Do you think I'm good enough?

Silenceeeeeee
No reply
The fall

Death !

Who are they to say you can't have it all!

Who are they ,lady!
Who are they to say you can't have it all!
You are beautiful
And like that is not enough,you are magical!

Who do they think they are!
I assure you, lady you have the right!
What are they thinking, that hate is gonna bring you down?
That you will eventually give up the race and be subject like they want you to be?

They only think! They think their opinion matters!
They really think that by a few rules and laws they would make you rethink and carry on with their shallow customs!

They don't know!!
They don't know you're ready!
You're stronger
You are strong because your pain has become your power!
Their insecurity makes them pick on you!
But you have decided , yes!
To show them your strength!

Now they all look from a distance
How great you have become
And you smile because you know some keep talking talk
And you smile again, because their words don't even matter to you anymore
You're grown now!
And you know  you are gonna speak up and help others too!
Because society is eventually gonna chill!!
Society chilled for you anyway!

Hi!

Hi!
To y'all feeling down, who society has affected sooooo much that you do not even know yourself anymore...
You are a star that has been covered with customs and society and you're there wondering if you're really meant to exist...
This is for you!
Your existence is not a mistake!
Your creation was not accidental!
Just some lines for you today!

Speak up, girl, speak!

The world wants to see! I want to see!(lol)
You should be ambitious, what exactly are you doing!
The world awaits you!

WE ARE WOMEN



We're round and round
So many responsibilities upon our heads
We fight and fight
So many battles to meet their needs
We work and work
Multitasking all through the day
We cry and cry
So many tears that aren't even seen

We try and try
To meet up with standards that haven't been met
We hold on and hold on
Hold on to discriminations all over the place
We see and see
So many of us give up the race
We sit and wait
Hoping and waiting for our voices to be heard

Going round in circles with no gain
Society does not even see our pain
Laws do not even recognize our existence
We hold on , We pray and We are persistent
Waiting and fighting for change
 We are Women

SIT ON, GIRL!





Can the world see a difference
Can the people make a difference
Can she take the lead
Can she be a queen

Forever with innovations
Many inventions yet exhibited
Many ideas yet unheard
Forever wandering
Going round in circles
No exact destination

Can she speak for herself
Can she convince them with her words
Will they listen
Will they understand

They have refused to see the truth
They have refused to improve
They still do not want to accept
Nurturing wrong and evil
It is not about society anymore
It is now about insecurity

Above all, She was given a sit
And she held on to it!
Hold on to your sit, girl!

SPEAK UP GIRL



Hi, my name is Yommy Ayilara. I`m a feminist, a blogger and a law student.
People close to me know that I am a very outspoken and blunt girl. And yesss! I talk a lot for the girlssss,the words flow. I always have something to contribute and I am always ready to defend girls whenever there is a little bit of disrespect. And trust me to always win(A lawyers skills, lolllll! *wink*).
Agree with me that there is a problem on the society! There is a menace! There is discrimination! There are voices not heard! There are people crying in despair! There are women waiting for help! There are orphans and vulnerable children not cared for!
The goal is to make the world a better place! I will talk and write and preach until there is a change!
This, I promise!
So that I won`t rant how I feel to my friends and family alone, here is a blog for you!


Aims : 3R`s 
Respect , Recognition and Realization.
Respect : I used to think society has refused to respect women, not until I did some research, spoke to a number of women and realized that a number of women do not think they deserve to be respected. I mean there are a lot of shallow minded women out there and this is totally not their fault. I blame it on the society and their general upbringing.
Hey girls! Let`s get that respect we deserve!
Send a message to yommyayilara@gmail.com, I might have a few things to say make you understand you should not be treated any less.
Recognition : this is another issue, I personally think our society has just refused to recognize the existence of women generally, bothering on our ability, capacity, usefulness and strength. Okay , I am a Nigerian, and by society, I mean `Nigeria` kindaa! Butttt! This is like a `whole world` thing and I just don`t want be selfish , so yes! 
Recognition all over the world, shall we! Let's work together to create seats for women all over the world!
Realization : it saddens my heart that a lot of women and I mean a whole lotttt do not want to become anything. I mean as a human, you should be responsible for yourself. Girllll , you should have dreams, you are permitted to have a career, plan your future, contribute to the economy, contribute in the political affairs of your state, contribute in the educational sector and be blunt dear, speak up! 

And yesssss. Speak up, girl! Society is gonna chill!
I want to help a girl speak up today, I want to ensure that girls are respected, recognized and are exposed to their realization. So, like my aims, it`s the 3R`s – Respect, Recognition and Realization and of course, for the girls! (I accept mails from boys too, so if you want to talk and you're boy, feel free! You have the right to be emotional and to express yourself. I love you )
Okay, I am not a boring person ( I think, lol). Anyway, I am gonna keep my write-ups short and interesting so just take a second to like and comment. I talk a lot, so let`s chat. Tell a friend to speak up!

I love you all!


Hey girl, your pain will become your power. You have dreams, chase them! Speak up, girl!
