Like A Girl

Listen to poem:
Like A Girl I play like a girl, I hit like a girl You say I throw like a girl, And when I run -- I run like a girl! All that plus more, enjoy this one size fits all Who and what I want comes from being strong Classy and fabulous, THIS is my song! I've been told, cut to size The world dark and gray, when life becomes an insult Take heed when I speak my mind, I am tough, outstanding, and beautiful! Move ahead --- say it twice, I smell nice A taste of Cool Water and Justice Perfume I have a non-stop multitask fixation As a woman, everything about me is hidden Magic and alluring the only joy in sexuality you'll need I'm empowering this moment! Endorsing Myself, with a certain sorta mystique I deliver an independent will, don't ever underestimate my physique I am a caregiver, a female who won't give up the fight I remain firm and believe all women have equal rights I walk and talk Like A girl wearing heels breaking sounds of Annabel I am, Mona's unforgettable smile, Standing tall Like Miss Liberty I am, Betsy Ross America's #1 designer Harriet, who found her way Like Theresa and Mary, I'm here to give change I am, Melania overwhelmed with love A leader -- A Goddess, I burn like Joan ---Cleopatra in the room ---Calamity Jane's wild side Amelia's heart Anne, with a secret inside Susan B, ready and woke Emily when I'm into deep I am me, full of life. The sound In your eyes isn't listening! You imagine I am weak -- not strong enough -- brave enough, You call me different and difficult! Still, you want my warmth -- my love -- my attention I am not less, I am more I am a woman -- I frown -- I cry -- I hurt and yell at the universe Nevertheless, I make a difference Like a girl, I smile A smile never seen or felt before, both defined and undefined Your heart will ask and implore for more Like a girl, I'll drive you wild, looking pretty "You're In Love!" My Self-confidence comes from who I am deep inside Everything I've become follows the makeup on my face Bare and nude, I am the Madonna flowering the mood At the end of every day, I have one other thing to say The Next Time You ask me to cook and clean Because you think, I belong in the kitchen You better believe I'm doing it my way LIKE A GIRL

This is fabulous! When I read it in my mind it sounded much more like a slam poetry reading than how y'all read it though. Powerful and inspiring-rise up proud and strong every day, high heels or cross trainers.
