Only a Girl #wwwblogs

“She won’t be hard to beat. She’s only a girl.”

Except:

I’m not

Not only a girl

Not “only” anything

No less than

No silence

No weakness on the field

I’m the dark horse

And the alpha

And the victor who will not yield

Underestimated

And consistently unsung

The weaker sex at every turn

But I carry fire

And move mountains

Unnoticed by my detractors

“Only a girl” they said

As if my sex might psych me out

“Only a girl”

As they failed to understand

What that meant

And I smiled

To underestimate me

Is to lose

Before you’ve left the blocks

Only a girl

Who will shift the world

Along with the women

Who paved the paths

Before me – Caroline A. Slee
