My name is not ‘bitch’
My name is not ‘his girl’
I have a name”

Nor am I 'your' girl
But I am a girl

Who sees her inner and outer beauty
Who appreciates herself for all that she is
And all that she will be”

She is stardust, like flowers
That cannot survive without sunshine.
She is beautiful when
She is happy.
She is thunder when
She is angry.

She is partner, helper, friend.

Or to be submissive to male egos.
Her yes is definite and her no is no.
