Time for Equality

You’re over there taking
As if you’re better than me
Thinking you’re always right
Never even giving me a chance
Or seeing if we agree
You think you need to be better at everything
As if it’s some kind of law
Never wanting to admit
You just got beat by a girl
You say you’re tougher
More “macho” and strong
But what you don’t understand is
Holding back your tears
Will only make you weaker
You feel the need to protect
All of us girls
But we are perfectly capable
Of fighting our own battles
Smarter than you think
Stronger than you know
It’s time you stopped
Underestimating
And accepted us as equals
