We are the girls who dare.

We pout, we shout.

We scream, we dream.

We are the girls who stand out.

We laugh, we swear.

We mute, we blare.

We are the girls who refuse to sit and stare.

We study, we play.

We run, we slay.

We are the girls who know the word brave.

We party, we pray.

We rally, we stay.

We are the girls who stand for what the conscience says.

We love, we don’t.

We cry, we won’t.

We are the girls whose hearts are strong but not stone.

We achieve, we fail.

We encourage, we trail.

We are the girls who believe and continue to sail.

We fight off dusted patriarchy,

We fly out of the golden cage.

We are the girls who dare.
