Y >>>> X
"I want to study too like my brother"

Sexism is still rife,
My future is destined to be an ideal wife,
Education is the only thing for which I yearn,
Like my brother I too want to read and learn,
I feel like a caged bird whose wings are cut,
Just because my Father chose to give me an X instead of Y.

 

A gender line... helps to keep women not on a pedestal, but in a cage.
