Never Lose That Sparkle in Your Eyes Little Girl!

Girlhood is a gift, the intellectual phase of a woman’s life,

Unencumbered by societal expectations or strife.

So, never lose that sparkle in your eyes,

The charm that makes girlhood sweetest.


Pursue any curiosity from the mysteries of flying kites

To the meaning of infinity, welcome your future with all your might.

For your untapped resources, dream, make it a hit.

Try to reach for the stars, go beyond the sky’s limit.


Seek for your guiding light

Through this maze of life, find light

To start living a life infused with joy

Fun and excitement, not like a toy.


Dive into your creativity.

Give your self-expression positivity.

Live in the light of integrity

Be a winner with veracity!


Be the sovereign of your empire

While running life’s continuous race.

Ever and anon breathe into it freshness,

To be away from lethargy or restlessness.


Nay, bring freshness physically,

To release new vigour constantly.

And to boost yourself mentally,

By resorting to stimulating activity.


Get deeper into the beautiful essence of life, to avoid sorrow,

To become the valiant, determined woman of tomorrow,

Be the dreamer, the fighter, stimulate your stamina, 

And enhance your persona.


So then, you will be like the Northern star,

Always sparkling, easily detected even from afar.
