Teaching to Lead, Teaching to Succeed

Would I be a teacher,
standing tall and strong,
I wouldn't mind a girl or two
to join and tag along.
Someone has to teach them,
(that someone being me)
how to stand tall for themselves
and finally be free.

They were not made to follow
in disgrace behind all men.
Women were made equally
and equally they stand.
So should I ever teach a class
of females how to lead,
I know that then,
I'd truely been
their guide to succeed.
