Fiercely defending her right to her emotional space, she stripped off the pink dress
Everyone was encroaching on her. In the past, they might have swallowed her whole.
Now she wrapped her fists with barbed wire, feeling it cut into her skin.
Come on world. It’s me against all of you, and I’m ready to fight dirty.
Everyone better watch out. Mama bear is ready to defend her territory.
Down and out is not in her vocabulary.
If anything, it just means get your hands dirty,
Get up, and swing for the fences.
Determined to rise like the phoenix of old,
Even if every part of her soul screamed in pain
Even after getting kicked back down again and again
Pushing past that finish line proved she had it within her
Little white ones are okay
If you don’t want to bruise their feelings, right?
Even if you should be honest, face it
So many more times they edge towards they gray
Here is the true balancing act
Until you find where the white gets dirty
Really you are golden
Then you finally cross that line, and you did, didn’t you?
