The Kind of Girl I Am


I’m not the girl who’ll put out
I’m not the girl who’ll give in
I’m not the life-sized barbie doll, who’ll just let you have her & transform her as you wish
I’m not typical or “normal”
I’m not the girl who will only stay because she “loves” him
I’m not the girl who will cuss you out, no matter how much I might be tempted
I am the girl who will accept you for who you are
I’m the girl who will stay strong despite my challenges
I’m the girl who goes her own path, not the one he wants her to take
I’m the girl who walked away from the boy I loved, although that was something I never thought I could do
I’m the girl who has stood up to her father, who looked him in the eyes and didn’t hesitate
I’m the girl who is in charge of her life.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
