I am not a novice nor am I in shame,
I hang my head high and away from the wrong claim.
I do no reside deep within,
And I am better as I've always been.
I hold standards well above,
And give the needed shove.
I hold no fold in listening to preachings,
I'd rather be the one with the teachings.
I am deemed a lion, a warrior in fight,
But, as a human I exceed the sight.
I do stand proud,
Not afraid of the crowd.
A leader must lead,
And never be run by greed.
I must follow my own path,
And never suffer someone's else's wrath.
I must hold strong,
And forget every wrong.
Look past my apperance of danger,
And into the heart of a loving stranger.
I must be open minded,
Because I am no longer blinded.
I must simply move on,
Not live in the past for what is gone.
I will not remain a broken chain.
Forever a gain,
Always a sister, a friend, and daughter in vain.
