What Is A Cowgirl - Poem by Kendra Tyler

What is a Cowgirl? They ask? And I say...
A woman who lives in the far flung West
Who's chosen to remain there
Who loves the cowboy life the best
And forever the prairie and plains

Her heart beats with a feeling of love
Weather single or a cowboy's bride
For her ancestors, settlers or the Great West
A feeling of belonging and pride

She was a bronc-rider in the Wild West Show
Trick riding and roping in fearless ways
Still racing and roping, ridin' rough stock
A Rodeo Champion who's honored today

The times she'd been hurt and has suffered
In the great vast arena of life
She picks up her had and dust herself off
Continuing on, over coming her strife
Many days that she rides
O'er the praire
suffering the cold the wind the rain
the beauty of the West comes shinnin' thru
Doesn't move to their cities so bright
Just can't understand this feeling of hers-

For this land and this life
That she'll fight
She's proud of her cowboy heritage
She's trying to help you save it fer ya
She's true to this way of life
Of the West
Now, that's a Cowgirl
Honest and True
That's what a Cowgirl Is!
