Because I am a Girl I ask…to be accepted just as I am.
Because I am a Girl I believe…it’s never too late to learn and create.
Because I am a Girl I hope…to be forever curious and appreciative of life.
Because I am a Girl I wonder…if I were a guy would I be a man, gentleman or boy. Or perhaps a mix of all three.
Because I am a Girl I dream…of blues skies, welcome rain and the rainbow’s end. And of one day seeing the Northern Lights.
Because I am a Girl I remember…it’s the simple things in life that fill you up.
Because I am a Girl I like…wearing clothes to colour my mood.
Because I am a Girl I dislike…excessive bitchiness. Let it go! Or better still…Let it be.
Because I am a Girl I feel…lucky to have such amazing family and friends.
Because I am a Girl I celebrate…our Venus traits, and how both genders have equally important roles to play in this WONDERFUL life.
