When they say that men are the stronger sex,
I think of you.
I have a belly laugh.
When you cried your way through difficult times,
I thought it was weakness.
I now know better.
When they ask me what's it to not have a father,
I say I don't know.
I have my mother.
When every life decision has to take you into account,
I feel empowered.
To be responsible for you.
When I answered a quiz about my greatest fear,
I hesitated to type the words.
When I want the best words to end this ode,
I quote Beyonce,
Ladies, you run the world.
