For The Girls With Fire
We are women.
Independent and strong.
If you tell us we belong in the kitchen,
We're about to prove you wrong.
We were born with a fire,
Burning deep within our souls,
Yet the world is still determined
To extinguish it whole.
We are told it is our fault,
When men stare at us in unflattering ways,
We are told it isn't a big deal,
When they still won't give us equal pay.
To all women out there,
Remember the fire inside of you
And when you are told to be silent
Let it rise and break through.
You are a daughter of the sun,
Let passion and pride revive
For you belong to yourself
With that knowledge, you will always thrive.
