We Are Strong

We are the stars above in sky

Look above and there we fly

See our wings and see our eyes

Our strength our courage

See us fly


We are the trees with roots in the ground

Growing beneath us to never fall down

Curling and twisting under your feet

Our pride and our love

In the face of defeat


We are the sun that shines on the earth

And everyday our light gives birth

To the beautiful sprouts growing up so high

With care and with heart

Even when we die


We are women in this world

To men’s pride we must bend and curl

But we are done with this horrid way

With strength and with courage

We’re going to stay.
