(To all the women out there – keep fighting!)


Call me names

and I will show what more I can be.

Criticize my looks

and I will prove that I am beautiful anyway.

Question my choices

and I will turn them into my best decisions.

Supress my rights

and I alone, will become a revolution.

Break my spirit

and I will rise like a phoenix

for I am – a woman.
