Shah Rukh Khan is undoubtedly one of the most talented actors that we have the fortune of witnessing during our lifetime. He’s a wonderful man, husband, father, humanitarian, and performer. Not only that, SRK has always had a way with words – as we have always noticed from his interviews and even in his 140-character tweets. But now he can officially add poet to his esteemed repertoire!
We all remember when he translated the Jab Tak Hai Jaan poem into English and had the fangirls and fanboys (and us) swooning over the beautiful words. Now he has taken the swoon quotient to an even higher level because recently at a book launch he recited a poem HE wrote. Inspired by international singer Zayn Malik, SRK’s poem was dedicated to the uplifting and empowerment of women around the world.
“This is for girls who stay up all night, this is for you who is 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 wear short skirts, and their heart on their sleeve, for girls who know how difficult it is to believe.
The girls who scream and cry to the pillows and tell them their goals, for girls who have a secret, but can’t tell a soul.
Let your eyes be your diamonds, make them your pearls, you’re beautiful because you fight like a girl.
For girls who have made mistakes and have regrets galore, for girls that may not win, but always get up from the floor.
The girls who take life as comes, the girl who have broken the code, for the girls who hope, that they’ll get better somewhere down the road.
Let your steps be a dance and jump and do the swirl, you’re beautiful because you fight like a girl.
For the girls who love with all their heart, although sometimes gets broke, to girls who think it’s over, to real girls, 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.”
