Girls Can’t Do Everything…SO?

Life Lessons from Simply My Swank:

Stop trying to play a role that is not yours.  What if the goalie constantly played forward? The grass is not greener.  Master your own, not your neighbor’s skills. Don’t live outside of your means.  Stop thinking you are something you are not.


SO frustrated

I don’t know about you

but I don’t want to do

Everything HE can do.

I’m glad he’s here

to open jars

and fix the broken

and rusty cars

install my lights

when they are out

reach the pan

I want to shout!

 

you silly girls

that say this stuff

you’re not a man

mind full of fluff

makes you look dumb

like the sky’s not blue

I’m a girl

just like you

my eyes work

life plainly seen

I see the difference

my mind is keen

 

he can do

so many things

that I can do

so that brings

him value, worth

I don’t look at him

as such a curse

 

our future’s dim

it devalues us

like a stupid curse

we are not the same

and what is worse

it puts us at a vulnerable place

like we don’t get it

scrunched up face!

like a one year old

learning to walk

don’t get it yet?

mindless talk

it’s an insane say

we are so different

in special ways

 

my ego doesn’t have

to scream

I’m just as good!

what does that mean?

NO!

I’m not!

I can’t lift that load

or focus as clear

on that icy road

or drive that monster

of a truck

with 18 gears

through the muck

 

listen, I’m not saying

those are all things

that women CAN’T do

I hear ya’ll sing…

well, just cause YOU

can’t do that do…

doesn’t mean all women

can’t do it too…

 

I casually shrug

your focus is blurry

you’re offended

see through the slurry

my brain uses multiple

synapses, yes!

to get the job done

I never rest.

his uses one

focus steady

to get the job done

mission ready

 

“what are you thinking?”

she will ask.

he will answer

“the job at task”

she is thinking

everything all at once.

subjects her power

assuming, dunce.

Now they are fighting

about a care

a stupid woe

that was never there.

 

You’re telling me though

girls can do

anything!

girls are better!

yeah, sing that sing

la, la, la!

ridiculous song

la, la, la!

you belong

in a class

where truth is taught.

Pay respect

history bought

they work hard

they all fought

not you

not warriors

it’s okay

we’re glorious!

 

so please I beg

stop sealing your fate

we are all special

we all have roles

and they are valuable

special toles

so work hard

be great

at what you do

stop pointing fingers

and saying, me too

you look like a child

incessant me

over and over

see? see? see?

look at me!

I’m so great

yes, you are

but hang on wait

you’re ideas are nuts

you’re telling lies

everything is different

women aren’t guys

focus more on

what’s on your plate

and just be you!

girls are great!

be the best

that you can do

but don’t say things, hunny,

that just aren’t true

can we please stop being

so extreme

so disillusioned

so in between?

so uneducated

and embarrassing

let’s reorganize

say wise things.

please.

 

stop saying

I’m better

It makes you look silly

you’re not like him

you don’t have his willy

or the hair that grows

upon his chest

or the burden he bears

you’re not like the rest

you’re you.

so special.

a girl

be proud.

 

girl, you’re not

a man

just like a cow

isn’t ham.

1+1 does not = 3

it never has

and never will be

 

Ephesians 2:10

10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
