This Kind Of Girl Poem by Gladys Ombati

This Kind Of Girl

Rating: 4.5

I won’t deny it,
In fact, I also don’t understand,
How the world tends to confine
And try its best to define
This kind of girl
“A girl so full of simplicity.”

She comes from a world
Where people are born selfless
Humanity is beautiful when kind,
How then, will she put in her mind
That wanting more, when in excess is necessary
For this kind of girl?
“A girl so full of kindness.”

Others consider it ridiculous,
What her form of entertainment is,
For ‘top songs’, she knows no lyric,
Save for the sweet hums and mimic
Of ‘her songs’. How does she fit in?
This kind of girl.
“A girl so sweet.”

In her possibly small world,
She has her esteem; perfect confident,
All this shaped by outreach
Till she was taught that it’s in being rich
That brings one honour; how twisted
For this kind of girl!
“A girl so empathetic.”

Even in times of despair
When encouragement seems so useless
Where the only saviour seen is money,
Naturally, she thinks “There's an alternative, honey.”
For her, sweet memories are made of this
Materialism is a new kind of word and world-
For this kind of girl.
“A girl so careful.”

Well, this kind of girl,
Just this kind, believes in herself.
She trusts all is fine; and her smile-
It has taught her to travel the mile
In this chaotic world. In being her, just her;
She believes- is the kind of girl this world needs.
“A girl so loving.”

A girl so full of simplicity, a girl so full of kindness,
A girl so sweet, a girl so empathetic,
A girl so careful.
A girl that serves the world with so much love.
A girl in her own world- is what this world needs!
This kind of girl.

I believe if only the world had just half the number of this kind of girls from all the 'others' then the world would be wonderful place for all of us. Great poem.

In fact we need these type of girls, but my fear is they are rare because of technology and they are ahead of their age. Wonderful poem Ombati

Thanks Charity. It's a pity that this kind of girl is becoming rare, that's why there's more need to worry and voice it out. We need this kind of girl, the girl brought up in principle not technology's preference!
