If I Were a Girl...

If I Were a Girl...

A Poem by Steven Cash
"

I feel this is like a cross between Beyonce's "If I Were A Boy" and Bruno Mars "Just the Way You Are".

"

            If I were a girl, I’d love myself, despite what the guys may say

            I would look in the mirror and see myself�"beautiful in my own way

            If I were a girl I’d not live and die by the love of a guy

            If he can’t love me for who I am, then sorry, it’s goodbye

 

            If I were a girl I’d take my hair and style it as I choose

            It doesn’t have to be long and flowing, like women in the news

            If I were a girl I’d know my clothes don’t have to come from Abbie and Fitch

            I don’t have to be with the in crowd, who’d leave me in a ditch

 

            If I were a girl I’d not sell myself cheap just cause a guy says I’m cute

            And if he only wants sex from me, I’d simply give him the boot

            If I were a girl I’d show the world I don’t have to be rail thin

            I don’t have to heave my lunch so I can just fit in

 

            But because I’m not a girl I can only tell you how I feel as a guy

            Cause girls, you are precious. Don’t ever think that’s a lie

            I don’t care how you look, what you have done or do

            I believe you are precious

            Just because you are you

your welcome:)
Wow....you're probably the first guy that I've ever seen write a poem about being a girl...and the first guy that said to don't see ourselves short and seems to actually mean it. You actually made my day today, Steven. I've been feeling like s**t for about a week now and you've just cheered me up. Thanks so much! Love the poem. And don't worry, I'm the kind of girl that doesn't let guys bother me or try to be like all those models. ;)

Love the above comment, I think your poem is what guys think girls want to here, but if we dared speak them they would just jump on the back of some studs Harley and tell you to man up as they roared away. Seriously though this is a well constructed piece and you say some very important and cleaver things

Part of this made me laugh so hard that I fell of my bed like (tho I almost broke my phone :P) " And if he only wants sex from me, I’d simply give him the boot" XD great line!
The ending was the best! " I believe you are precious, Just because you are you" best ending eva *.*

I like this work - However I wish it was as simple as this - loving yourself is a feat many people don't reach - the world is so grey - thanks for sharing!
