I Am Girl

I am girl
Taught to be delicate
Thought to be fragile
Expected to love only the frilly things
To be saved like a damsel in distress

But my older brothers think otherwise
We brawl
We wrestle
They teach me self defense
That I can love the delicate things
And still come out stronger
That I could play with dolls
And also do karate
That I too can enjoy the games they play without losing my femininity

I am all these things
I am girl
