We raise our girls to look a certain way.
We raise our girls to rely on others.
We raise our girls to become what society wants us to be.
We raise our girls to hurt, because we know no other way.
We raise our girls to dress and act a certain way, so they are not judged by them.
Who is them?
Them is the world. The world in which we are raising our girls to reach.
The world in which we can raise our girls to reach for more.
Reach for more doors and explore who they are.
A girl can raise herself into a woman, only if she wants to.
She can be strong, above the judgement, above the standard.
She can be raised rely on her dreams and her life.
The world will raise her to be what society wants her to be, no matter how hard she fights.
It will never let go of her.
