It takes a lot of patience
To be a girl like me.
To work so hard for lots of things
That my friends all get for free
It takes a lot of courage
To be a girl like this
To walk the straight and narrow
While others hit and miss
My life has not been easy
In fact, it's been far from it
Many days have come and gone
When I thought I'd have to quit
It takes a lot of dedication
To school and church and family
Even on days that I'm exhausted
But I'm exactly who I want to be!
It takes a lot of happiness
To make this smile so bright
I was created flawlessly.
A splash of color in a world of white.
