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

This was a great write. I believe every girl should listen to the words you have written here. I agree with it because I am me and I don't change for any man. If they don't like me for me then screw what they think. Great write. I loved it. Thanks for sharing. :3
