to be a woman

Location

girl, if you are to be a woman here
your hair must not be cut above your ears
you smile and laugh and never shed a tear
that's just the way it is for women here

the world will tell you what you cannot be
"success, for you, is always up to me"
a doctor? ha! not even in your dreams
you'll learn the world is not all that it seems

however

the world is all you wanted it to be
we'll make the world our own, just you and me
no need to stress, you know, we'll make them see

a woman is a beautiful thing to be
