I’m More Like The Other Girls

In junior kindergarten I played like
I played like the other girls
Feeding, holding, and rocking a doll
Still unaware that I’d someday soon
Be wishing I’d the needed courage
To say I’m more like them
And I’m less like the boys
‘Cause they’d tell me boys don’t
Play with dolls and the like

In late elementary school I watched
The other girls on the playground
Wishing I’d the needed courage to
Say I’m more like them and
That I’m less like the boys
Yes I should’ve been playing skipping
Instead of playing touch football and
At times walking around all alone
With just my walkman for company

In high school I did watch
I watched the other girls talking
About their changing bodies, futures and
Wishing I’d the needed courage to
Say I’m more like them and
That I’m less like the boys
And that I should be playing
Soccer on the girls team instead
Of being on the boys team

If the needed courage had come
From inside me I’d have developed
More like the other girls and
Not so much like the boys and
My life would be easier and
Not as hard as its been

In junior kindergarten I played like
I played like the other girls
Feeding, holding, and rocking a doll

Wanna Be Healthy And Whole (As I Can Ever Be)

I keep slowly over time
Leaving places till I am
Some place new but still
With the baggage from before
I holed myself back from
Letting myself go and blossoming
Into the person I need
To be if I wanna
Be as healthy and whole
As I can ever be

So this time when I
Leave this place I will
Not take my baggage but
Only take my hard earned
Courage to my next destination
Courage to let myself blossom
Into the person I need
To be if I wanna
Be as healthy and whole
As I can ever be

Courage to let myself blossom
Into the person I need
To be if I wanna
Be as healthy and whole
As I can ever be

Wanna be healthy and whole
As I can ever be

Courage Is Slow

Courage is slow
It is go do one thing
But not all at ones rather
Start with one step then another
To take you away from here
And closer to being more whole

In your past
You did not get to be
Seen as you feel you are
Being who you are is crucial
For you to be whole and
Able to give all you have

Courage is slow
But it is crucial if you
Are to make your world better
For you and those around you
Need what you have to give
To them with your own life

In your past
You did not get to be
Seen as you feel you are
Being who you are is crucial

Courage is slow
But with it your past will
Be just that not your future
It looks to be shining brightly
