This generation

Is not going to praise locked up princesses

Or the ones with very long hair.

But the queen who fought alone

And conquered a nation.

When your kid wants to watch a Disney movie,

Show her “Brave,” “Mulan” and “Pocahontas.”


This generation

Needs to know

That beauty isn’t strong


Strong is beauty.

This generation

Of women

Shall learn to fight on their own

With their chins up

And eyeliners winged.
