authentic and strong

authentic and strong
you do not kiss anybody's ass
or pretend you are anything
that you're not
fiercely independent you
have your rules
not guidelines
not negotiables
and you don't doll up
to please man or woman
or play with hearts
for the sake of playing
you don't care who cares
if you care that's enough
you don't try to be sexy
instead you are strong
certain, focused, driven,
persistent and loyal
and wow,
that is powerfully awesomely
