I am that girl who embraces her inner child the L-word emancipates my soul returns my dignity and integrity i am that girl whose soul woke up to the smell of earth after rain claiming the L-word as my soulmate awakened to your beauty a girl like me i am not the girl who wastes time and money on hair extensions and expensive beauty products i prefer being in the hairstyle i went to bed with! i am that girl who chooses food over fashion my care-free personality envied by many i know what i want when i want a girl like me! i am that girl who does not take orders from boyfriends i know exactly whom i want a girl like me! i am that girl who is different from the female species i give my love to whom i want when i want a girl like me! i am that girl who speaks her mind through writing! i am that girl living my own thoughts believing my own dreams i am that girl who embraces the L-word!
