    Inspired By Zayn Malik, Shah Rukh Khan Wrote A Poem On The Empowerment Of Girls

    "You're beautiful because you fight like a girl."

    Yesterday, at the launch of debutante author Gunjan Jain's book "She Walks, She Leads", Shah Rukh Khan made a speech taking about trailblazing women, and crediting the women in his life.

    "There was an amazing quote about girls that I read, by Zayn Malik, when I met him in London. And inspired by his thoughts and his writing, I penned a poem," said Shah Rukh, and proceeded to recite his poem.

    This is for girls who stay up all night,
    This is for you who are willing to fight,
    For hidden fears,
    Hurt, pain, and tears,
    Under the smiles, laughs, and giggles we hear.
    Let your hair down, straight or curls,
    You're beautiful because you fight like a girl.
    For girls who wears short skirts,
    And their heart on their sleeve,
    For girls who know how difficult,
    It is to believe,
    The girls who scream and cry,
    Into their pillows and tell them their goals,
    For girls who have a secret,
    But can't tell a soul.
    Let your eyes be your diamond,
    Make them your pearls,
    You're beautiful because you fight like a girl.
    For girls who have made mistakes,
    And have regrets galore,
    Because you fight like a girl.
    For the girls who love with all their heart,
    Although it sometimes gets broke,
    To who think it's over,
    To real girls, to all girls,
    Who have tears to soak.
    You throw, you pick up, and fall,
    But just tell the world,
    "I'm beautiful,
    Because I fight like a girl."
