To Protect and Serve

"It would be a waste of a mind"

"You're just a girl"

"No one would take you seriously" 

"You could do bigger things"

"You're too small"


My mind; an asset

My gender; irrelevant 

Their sexism; my advantage 

Their expectations; MY dream

My physic, is misleading


I will protect, I will serve no matter the obstacle
