This Girl,

she stands,

ready to face the world.

She stands,

with her head held high,

facing you, facing me,

facing countless faces.

In a crowd, a class, on the street,

She stands,

up to judgment,

against the hate,

despite the constraints,

holding on to support,

she finds in those who value her the most.

She stands,

this African Girl,

She Stands.
