Let the girl child rise and shine

They never tell us, will never do and we may never know. Some school girls will be women before they are school children. Detours and lay-byes are very common before school starts.

Call it lodge and Bush crawling. With 'belts' for skirts, they sway and swing about as if they are achievers yet are only aspiring before expiring.

Most people only realise the importance of education when school days are over yet they were playing house when opportunity was knocking relentlessly. Remember it knocks only once at every man's door.

Some parents and guardians have given up on their wayward children leaving them to fate.

Bright lads fall by the wayside with no one to urge them on. No academic cheerleaders why? Let the girl child rise and shine, help to bring out the potential and 'tiger' in her.

The girl child is very capable, very intelligent and willing. Lodges are for those who have given up on education and have become followers of 'Bacchus' that Greek goddess of wine.

Harlotry is nurtured and note natured, even the Most High does not want offerings from the proceeds of prostitution. When privates are laid bare for strangers to ogle and abuse. The Good Book tells us human bodies are God's temples.

Girl children must respect themselves and aim to reach higher. Unplanned and unwanted pregnancies are a big drawback to both parents and the girls caught up in the social maze.
