I AM THAT GIRL / Poem by Akimana Divine

Poem by Akimana Divine

 

I AM THAT GIRL

I am that girl who loves and believes.
I am that girl who still believes in holding,
~hands in public than holding my ass.
I am that girl that wants to be asked,
~How I slept instead of if I am gonna ~sleep over.
I am that girl who still wants to do your ~pedicure and manicure.
I am that girl who will lift other girls ~instead of keeping them down.
I am that girl who will say the positive ~word when everyone else is negative.

I am that girl who still smiles when people ~look at her because it gives hope.
I am that girl who still sees a rejected piece ~and turn it into a golden pot because
I have learnt that nothing is broken ~forever even trust can be built again.
I am that girl who sees light in the midst ~of a dull crowd.
I am that girl who portrays hope to the ~young generation.
I am that girl who still believes that love ~only hurts when you give in halves.
I am that girl who believe that a wild ~animal can be turned into a pet with love.

I am that girl who still believes every ~problem can be resolved outside a courtroom.
I am that girl that still believes in the wilderness
I am that girl who never received love but ~still loves like she is made out love.
I am that girl who still finds poetry sexier ~than a so called “expensive gift”
I am that who still believes in trying until ~you get the better self
I am that girl who stand for that girl not to ~perish in me.
