I can

I may be a woman

but it doesn't mean that I am less

Just because I am a woman

doesn't mean I will supress

 

I can be broken 

I can be beat 

I can be shackled 

but I can take the heat

 

You can abuse me 

You can rain on my parade

You can torture me as much as you want

but I won't need any aid

 

It's not because I'm stubborn

but it's because I dont quit 

because of my grind 

and because of my grit
