Flipping the Script
I feel for women in our society
Conditioned insecurity—aesthetic anxiety
The pressure to look the unattainable look
Makeup valued more than a self-help book
Heels so high, disconnected from our earth
Our egos stroked by corporations, lost worth
Everything fake—what’s real anymore?
Hiding what we feel, to fake it some more
Divide and conquer cannot continue!
Are we ready to replace this old menu?
Emotional manipulation fresh out the gate
Neurotically obsessing about our weight
We’re taught to compete over men
Chase diamonds, gossip, be a perfect ten
Over-priced products, buy it now
Innocence robbed, we must no longer allow!
Equal beings again, not conditioned by darkness
Focus flipped inward, free your inner artist
Changing our hearts—it’s time to check in
One in five girls cutting—what pain within
This isn’t about feeling sad or defeated
Find compassion, take action, intention completed
Children must be educated about the conditioning
Antidote to this tragedy: inner petitioning
Unraveling the messages, starting new
It’s time to stand up, soul up, we are through
Redefining women— authors of a fresh start
Expressing through passion, love and art
Designer products— no—you’re worth is within
If you go in that direction, you’ll never win
Forget propaganda that gives us no choices
Stop competing, unite our spiritual voices
Who holds the controller to our mental well being?
It has to be us—imagine we start truly seeing
Rise and shine sweet ladies, I have sweet news
We’re flipping that script—no more time to lose
So sorry to say, you’re not a princess my dear
You’re so much more, a warrior—no fear
Time to unleash the super powers within you
Be brave, heal and manifest something new
