To all the women who refuse to wear a bra every day,

Who let their leg hair grow,

With dirt under their finger nails,

You never needed anyone to say you were beautiful in the first place.

To all the women with stiletto heels,

And fresh scents of jasmine,

Who carefully pick out outfits for the day,

Neither did you.
