“No Girl Left Behind”
I may be adorable and a bit bright
Although my light shines inside of me, there is always a fight!
I want to belong and to be accepted, which is so hard to do!
I look for love and affection from every group
I have lots of friends, but I’m different
I listen to words, and I’m very attentive
My heart is so daring and independent, but I still need a group to nourish my brilliance
I like to think that I’m fearless and devoted in all that I do!
I’m still a young girl remarkable and true
Please make room and let me join you; through this journey
of power, strength and virtue
Don’t go and leave me behind; I’m smart, powerful, and kind!
I’m a courageous girl in every way, planting seeds of success that will flourish each and every day!
