I refuse to be out of faith
I don't care what they old wise men say.
If I were their wives,
I would whip them out of their double skin.
I am a product of something without balance
And so now I am out of balance
But that is all going to change.
I am going to learn the lessons
Passed from the little women
In our history
I'm going lose that shell.
I am going to lose that fragile thick shell.
I am going to lose that manly man stance.
I am going to stand like the way the bamboo would.
I am going to stand the way my mother
The way she stands in a cyclone
And kisses the wind of heaven.
