Don't let anybody tell you who you are; don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve what you're willing to work for.
Never give up; you\'ll never know how far you could go until you try to get to where you want to go.

You're sittin' over there
talkin' like you're better than me
like you've got a right, more skill in everything
like it's destined in some prophecy
But let me tell you something
something one day you'll see
one day you'll figure out, what the world is all about
you'll step back to re-evaluate me
re-think your priorities

CHORUS: Never underestimate a girl
cause' one day she will become your world
she understands,she wears the pants
she knows your thoughts with one glance

Never underestimate a girl
cause' one day you'll be on her pay roll
can control you with her finger,
so don't dare too long to linger,
cause' you know she's in control
never underestimate a girl

Go ahead and drop your mouth
you know what I'm talkin' about
guess one day you'll see
Beauty tamed the Beast
Ariel left the sea
we're stronger than you think


Never underestimate a girl
no, never underestimate a girl

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE A GIRL... I know some guys think they are tougher or more skilled but... us girls stick together and we're strong and we're quick thinking... so we'll take your world by surprise....

I always just focus on what my own goals are, and not what anybody else's goals for me are or their expectations. I just know that my family will always be supporting me and my friends and my coaches. And as long as I put in the hard work and know that I'm giving it my best effort, I will always be happy.

Katie Ledecky

I love how you used fairy tales in this too, it's really well written

I loved this song. You did such an amazing job putting together the lyrics. You are an amazing song writer. I wish we could hear it with the adequate music and voice. LOVED IT!!! Keep working hard girl. You did amazing!!

I like how the smallest tasks were used as examples like working as a boss and wearing pants not things like birth and periods because those are things that differentiate between men and women and aside from those things apart, women are strong and deserve to be treated as if they aren't fragile and brittle and useless. Great poem!

This was a very interesting yet strong poem because it brings to light the problems faced in society. It makes you think about how women are treated on a day to day basis in America, and how we should fight for whats right.

I love this, so subtle, but powerful, and got the message across really nicely, not too aggressive, but not a background voice.

When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.

It's totally awesome! I'm a country girl too. I grew up in a farm and I love your way with words!

I can relate to this so much, and you're right! Beauty tamed the Beast, Ariel left the sea, Elsa found her inner beauty (sorry on a rhyming roll lol). I love how you captured what we want to say and how we feel. You go girl!

Show them who, what, when, where, and how. But most importantly, show them WHY, because every great story has a WHY.

It's a very powerful poem, amanda727. I know what it's like to be underestimated by guys. There are some things - like move heavy things onstage - that I'm just not supposed to do because "You're a girl and there are literally guys five feet away from you, you could get hurt, and honestly JayeNix, stop before something happens, you're literally the person most likely to get hurt in here...". This poem speaks to me.

Is there a particular person you were thinking of when you wrote it? You poem seems very... focused, like you wrote it for a particular person (or about them).

not all guys are like that though. some still have class and are still gentlemen. we cant assume that all guys are jerks just because the majority are
