I’ll embrace the title of being a bitch

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs,
they call me a bitch.
When I stand up for those I love,
they call me a Bitch.
When I speak, think my own thoughts or do 
things my own way, they call me a bitch.

Being a bitch entails raising my children to be strong 
people who have a strong sense of personal and social 
responsibility, who are not afraid to stand up for what 
they believe in and who love and respect themselves for 
the beautiful beings they are.

Being a BITCH means I won’t compromise what’s in my heart 
It means I live my life MY way. It means I won’t allow 
anyone to step on me. When I refuse to tolerate injustice 
and speak up against it, I am defined as a bitch.
The same thing happens when I take time for myself 
instead of being everyone’s maid, or when I act a little selfish

I am proud to be a bitch!! It means I have the courage and 
strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won’t 
become anyone else’s idea of what they think ” I should be.”
I am outspoken, opinionated, and determined.
I want what I want, and there is nothing wrong with that.

So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash
every ounce of beauty I hold within me. You WON’T succeed.
And if that makes me a bitch then so be it. I embrace the title 
and am proud of it!
