CHILDHOOD MUSES

Here’s to the strong and powerful.

Here’s to the ones who knew what they were,
What they needed and sacrificed everything to get it.

Here’s to the brave ones, the gifted ones,
The envelope pushers, the soul stirrers,
The trouble makers.

Here’s to the real artists who truly embodied
Everything I aspire to be.

It hasn’t been the same without some of you ladies!

I can only hope today’s teen / 20 something girl will have
someone speak as loudly, eloquently, artistically
and bravely as you did for our generation.

Long Live GIRL POWER!
