I’m a Girl
I’m a girl with a strong liver and an even stronger spirit.
Who only needed one heartbreak to learn her lesson and who doesn’t let just anybody into her life.
I’m a girl who takes her shots without a chaser
and who prefers bare feet to high heels.
I’m a girl who drives too fast and listens to her music too loud.
I care so much it hurts, and I have a heart that’s too big for my body.
I laugh too loud and cuss when I’m mad.
Country music speaks to my soul, and I’ve always preferred open spaces to the city anyway.
Sometimes I just need a cigarette and I don’t need your judgment.
I’m a girl who thinks that a big bowl of ice cream can make anything better
and who pretends she doesn’t cry during sad movies.
I cut my hair to defy gender roles.
At a party, I’m not gonna shove my tits in your face,
but I will throw my words at you. And if you can’t handle them,
then you can’t handle me.
I talk to my cat and I swear that she understands me.
I don’t like every single person I meet, but I do my best to love them all.
I don’t believe in God, but sometimes I just need to pray to Something.
I say the word Fuck when I probably shouldn’t,
but that never seems to stop me.
I’m not a size 2 but I don’t want to be either.
I’m a girl who would rather play in the waves than lay in the sand.
A girl who’s not afraid to get her hands dirty
and sweat from a day’s hard work.
When I see something happening that is wrong, I do something about it
and I stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves.
I’m a girl that some would call crazy, and maybe I am.
Crazy makes life more interesting.
I’m scared to death of having a child, and even more scared of raising one.
I may not ever be Miss America, but I will always be my daddy’s princess.
I’m a girl who is as free as the bird she always wanted to be.
And someday I will fly away.
I’m a girl who believes that there is never a wrong time to say “You’re beautiful”
or “I love you”
I’m a dreamer and a lover and a sister and a daughter.
I can’t tell you where I’m going to be in a year or what I’m going to be like then.
I’m a girl who is a different person depending on the day of the week and what she had for lunch.
But one thing is for sure and is never going to change.
I am a girl who is never going to be anybody but me.
