Women are weak, everyone says

Even from men you would least expect

Every day a woman gets upset

Over not being good enough or not looking her best

Because that’s what people see

But you know what’s really deep?

Women are what MADE you

Without us who ARE you?

Women are the reason you are here

And we don’t shame you

Women are the future, we’ve made it this far

I walk in school everyday with fear in my heart

That men won’t change to let us have our reign

But here’s the deal, one day this world will change

Because it’s a disaster

We just want our names plastered on walls

And to make sure they never fall

We will rise to power

Whether it takes years we will devour everyone in our way

And we won’t let a single woman stray

We are the people who will make the world one

One day

One day the world will change

One day it will be a beautiful place

Nevertheless we will persist

And if you stop us we will be pissed

It’s written on our wrist

We already coexist

So let us take our rightful place

We will make a change

We are strong

Because we are women
