Stand Up Strong Girl_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

I don’t need
Stilts or stilettos
To teeter totter
My way through life

I don’t need
A pale withered frame
To drag me down
As I wander around

I don’t need
Dainty day clothes
I’m not here
To play your game

I don’t agree
To run your race
Houses and TV’s
Mean little to me

What do I need
A strong heart
Strong base
Strong head
Strong legs
To get me where I’m going

What do I need
Fresh air
Wide open space
To be as I please

What will it take
To love myself
Stand up
Strong girl
To sad society
