Girl

100_2230 smGirl.

She walks tall,

Plans,

Creates,

Loves,

Laughs.

 

Considers,

Debates,

Decides.

 

Imagines,

Does.

 

Is.

 

In the space given to her–

The space too small

To hold all that is

Girl,

The space with limits,

Rules,

Expectations that do not meet hers.

Expectations too low:

Strength,

Independence,

Endurance,

Brains.

Expectations too high:

Beauty,

Popularity,

Helplessness.

 

Make way.

Make space for her.

Space for steely resolve.

Space for sweat.

Space for skinned knees and

Dogged determination.

 

Because Girl

She walks tall.

She

Is.
