Listen,
You’re a strong young lady
Listen,
Fly free like a bird soaring through the air
Listen,
Let the wind pick you up
Listen,
You are worth more than you’ll ever know
Listen,
You need to keep your chin up and your head held high
Listen,
Never say you can’t do it, you can move mountains
Listen,
You’re beautiful no matter what anyone says, don’t change for anyone
Listen,
You can do anything you set your mind to
