Beyond the Prince Charming stories and the delicate frills

and the gripping fear of staying pretty and slim drills

Looking beyond the drapes of the pinks

laughing aloud, sitting wide legged,

the bold and unapologetic winks

From picking our careers to settling on a mate

We no more like to surrender to our fates

Our gender does not restrict our career choices

We carry the grit to counter the societal vices

Our beauty is skin deep and deeper is our strength

We bask in the empowering sunshine of freedom,

gleaming with hopes, we are so drenched
