But only another birth"

Here’s to the girls who
wear graphic tees with superheroes on them,
Sleep in late just to pretend they’re somewhere they’re not.

Here’s to the girls who
would rather read than run,
Would eat a peach over candy,
and love instead of hate.

Here’s to the pokemon players,
tree sitters,
tea drinkers,
and letter writers.

Here’s to the girls who
don’t care about gossip,
Detest gym class,
and dress up like elves.

Here’s to the
Ravenclaws,
Gryffindors,
Hufflepuffs,
and Slytherins.

To the
Victors,
Rebels,
warriors,
and

lastly,
Here’s to the girls
who just don’t give a poptart.

Hahaha this poem was so cute, Liv!! I loved it so much, especially the stanza alluding to Harry Potter...because I'll admit I'm a total Potterhead lol!! ;) You've created an amazing tribute to all the girls out there who don't necessarily fit society's stereotypes. I think every girl who reads this (including me!!) will be able to find a part of it that they can connect to, because there is no such thing as "normal;" everyone has their little quirks, whatever they may be ;) And that's how life is supposed to be :) Thank you so much for posting this, Liv! I absolutely loved it!!!! XD

I thought I commented ont his. :( I'm so sorry. I'm sorry, I haven't commented on your writing in a while. :( I loved this and I still love it. I can connect to it, a lot, because I am so many of those. :P I thought somewhere in the last line of the poem it said, "Here's to the girls who have a <3." But haha, my memory sometimes fails me. But, your poem is absolutely beautiful and inspiring. :) I can't tell you, how wonderful it is. I sincerely, believe that you have a great future and you'll be famous. You have such a talent and greatness in you. You are amazing. Thank you, so much for shariong this. :)
