[Poetry] Strong is the new beautiful

Updated: Jun 8, 2021

Girls being fearless and wild,

don't hold them back, let them be

loud, confident and silly;

strong is the new beautiful


And you judge their carefree stride

stereotypically,

resilient yet determined;

strong is the new wonderful


You object they speak frankly,

your protests offend deeply,

don't quell the liberal voice;

strong is the new delightful


We rally forth, surely, while

all are free to disagree.
