“You are not a girl. You are a sword”

The next time someone says says, “act like a lady”

tell them you are a warrior,

you have been fighting since the day you were born

and your body is a battlefield.

Tell them you carry the weight of eyes as you walk down the street,

but you are not here to be conquered, you are and always will be your own.

Tell them the world has not been kind to women,

and you intend to set it aflame.
