Innocence, purity, warmth and love

You stand for all these and more

Fearless, undaunted, always determined

Let these be your absolute core

May compassion and kindness be your guide

But even at your lowest low

Never feel the need to please everyone

And never find it hard to say No

Be it that uncle who wants to hug you

Or that man who ask you to sit on his lap

Be bold and shout out the nay loud

Your inner strength is what you must tap

May valiance and courage be your virtues

Not beauty or capacity to endure

You fight with everyone, including me,

In order to make your future secure

Make your own plans and stick to them

Never let a man tell you he’ll take good care,

Of you, your desires and your dreams

Be cautious, when you decide to let that soul bare
