Don’t tell me no.
In my mind that’s just a challenge.
Don’t feel sorry for me,
Because I’ll provide you with more than enough reasons not to.

Do not confuse my charm with attitude,
My smile with ignorance,
Or my tendency not to be bothered as being a pushover.

You see,
I am a woman with views,
I have learned that life is so much brighter
On the bright side.
And sometimes how you feel just doesn’t matter.


I am a woman,
With dreams,
And yes, SO much opportunity.

I am a woman,
With grace,
And laughter,
And the tendency to take things a little far..

I am a woman with passion,
And hopes,
Things I want more than the world…

I am a woman with doubt,

I am a girl.
I am getting by,
Living on dreams and the love of friends.

I am a girl,
Who wants to be needed,
Who will change the world.

I am a girl who tries.

I am a girl who embraces change.
Knows fear,
But takes pride in her bravery.

I am a risk taker,
I am a dreamer,
I am a fighter, and survivor
And I am a woman.
With pride.

This is meant to be spoken word... it has much more effect that way.
