What it Means to Be a Girl

By @tiffani_kane74

~

To be a girl means to be strong 

To be undeniably fearless and powerful

To feel like your life is where you belong

It means to fight through a beautiful song 

To deny evil words, no matter how hurtful

To be a girl means to be strong

Although the biology may sometimes seem wrong

The feeling at heart is what’s always allowable 

To feel like your life is where you belong

It means to live outside of what’s drawn 

And to bring to naught what the cowards may pull

To be a girl means to be strong 

It means to rise up like the sun at dawn

And to stomp out cliches that burn hot like red coal

To feel like your life is where you belong 

To contend in the battle ’till the battle is won

And to feel the pride burn deep down in your soul 

To be a girl means to be strong 

To feel like your life is where you belong
