Let Them Call You Crazy, It Takes Guts To Dream…

Posted: March 6, 2019

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

Every strong woman with a mind of her own has been called crazy at some point in her life. This is an ode to all you crazy women!

Let them call you emotional
It only shows how strong you are
Equality is not a small battle
Come on girl, prepare for war!

Let them call you dramatic
Express yourself whole and soul
Do not listen to what they say
Winning should be your only goal.

Let them call you delusional
Not everyone can dream like you
Only a small set work towards it
Stand up for those very few.

Let them call you hysterical
Don’t let your anger hold you back
Invest it in making yourself stronger
Remember, there is nothing you lack.

Let them call you unreasonable
Gender doesn’t define ambition
Go ahead and chase the higher goal
You don’t need any one’s validation

Let them call you unladylike
Words like these don’t define you
Be who you are, in all your glory
Paint yourself in your unique hue

Let them call you crazy
It takes guts to dream and go for it
Everyone successful was once called that
For greater things, you are built

Turn a deaf ear to all that they say
You move forward, bit by bit
Nothing is impossible for you
Come on girl, just do it!
