You Say, I Say

Mon, 05/26/2014 - 21:53 -- hoppinc


You say I'm not skilled enough, clever enough, qualified enough

You say I can't be as smart, as strong, as independent as the guy sitting next to me

You say I should chose interests that are more "lady-like", more "reserved", more "socially acceptable for a girl"

Based off of the fact that I am, shocker!, a girl

I say you're wrong

I say I can like whatever I want to like

I say I can be whatever I want to be

I say I am smart, I am skilled, I am strong

And nothing you say will change that
