not yours to define

My body isn't yours to define

no matter how hard you try

to fit me in your box

or fit in that top

I am not yours to define.

 

My feminimity isn't yours to define

just because I don't cry

or when you say I play a sport that isn't like  "me"

I don't care, I like the sport of rugby

I am not yours to define.

 

My intelligence isn't yours to define

just because I ask why

when I don't understand a new concept

that I don't understand yet

I am not yours to define.

 

I am mine to define

even when you moan and whine

you may say I'm a mess

but I know I am flawless

I am mine to define.
