Rosie the Riveter

With every pound that weighs me down,
I stand a little straighter, now;
In time I’ve shoved it to the floor
And dared the world to give me more.

It’s what the whole of us have felt,
With what we all have failed or dealt,
Those trying times that wear on us,
Defining what can hinder us.

There’s nothing that can bring me down
Since Rosie, with her red cloth crown,
Says, “We can do it!” She’s the proof
That I can do it! I can, too!
