Yesterday, I went to god and asked,
About the girl's task
That, girl is very nice
But why only she has to sacrifice?

Girls are discriminated from birth
Than, why you make girl in this beautiful world?

Girl is very kind
But why in every field she lacks behind?

You gave me happiness.
But, why various girls face sadness.

God smiled and said,
Why are you asking these questions?
Instead of the fact that you have no tensions.

Then, suddenly I began to scream.
And then, I realized that it was just the dream.
