I'm A Bitch, Are You???

I'm A Bitch, Are You?

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a bitch.
When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.
When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts, or do things my own way,
they call me a bitch.

Being a bitch entails raising my children to be strong people who have a solid
sense of personal and social responsibility, who are not afraid to stand
up for what they believe in and who love and respect themselves
for the beautiful beings they are.

Being a bitch means that I am free to be the wonderful creature
that am, with all my own intricacies, contradictions, quirks and beauty.

Being a bitch means I won't compromise what's in my heart.
It means I live my life MY way. It means I won't allow anyone to step
on me. When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak up against it,
I am defined as a bitch.
The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of
being everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish.

I am proud to be a bitch!
It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be
who I truly am and won't become anyone else's idea of what
they think I "should" be.
I am outspoken, opinionated, and determined. By God, I want what I want,
and there is nothing wrong with that!

So try to stomp on me,
try to douse my inner flame,
try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me.

You won't succeed.
And if that makes me a bitch, so be it.
I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.
