With my right hand raised
I solemnly swear
To love myself for who I am
And always care

When I look in the mirror
I promise to smile
Because I know all the things that are bad
Will only stay a while

I let go of my bad decisions
And past mistakes
And promise from now on
Only good choices I’ll make

Never again will I let someone else choose
This is my life I claim it
And never will I be an object
For just anyone to use

When you look at me you will not
See a frown on my face
I know who I am
No one can take my place

So much of life left
I’m not nearly done
No more being close to the edge
For myself all this I pledge

The author's comments:
I wrote this one day walkin home the words just came to me. Every girl should make a pledge to themselves there should be some standards and a level of respect they have for themselves. That's just what I think.
