Mother of dragons

It isn’t in my nature to shrink for men.

I was born from women who don’t spend time in the shadows,

Frontline soliders.

Warriors with finger waves and hooped earrings.

We don’t shrink for men.

Fueled by feminism before we can even spell it out.

The mulitafceted creatures who climbed trees and played with barbies,

Who made up dance routines and played in the dirt.

We are not scared of getting our hands dirty.

We thrive

We survive

We fight on.
