It’s time to stand tall, you’re not that little girl,
Who hides behind closed doors, fearful of the world.
It’s time to reach further, to stretch your lengths,
As you develop the power, the tools, and the strengths.
Cut that chain, let it fade away,
It’s held you before, but not today.
You come to see that the darkness is not true.
There’s a dazzling fire that burns, inside of you.
Don’t keep it contained, it can light up the world,
Sparkling, or neon, or shiny or pearled.
What really matters is that light is your own,
It’s brighter than the any of the ties that you’ve known.
You’re stronger than the chains that tug and that pull,
You are a vessel, determination your fuel.
So take a great leap, and blaze a trail,
Frayed ends of a broken rope will just a tell a tale,
Of the path you ventured, of a past left behind,
Now with limitless potential and strong state of mind.
Confidence unearthed from the weight that you held,
You may have failed, but now it’s time you excelled.
Declare your independence, let your heart run free,
Step into the life and the beauty you’re meant to see.
It’s here. It’s now. You have the choice.
You’re all grown up, now unleash your voice!
