I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels
There are a lot of young women like that in my life
Daughters, and nieces and grand- nieces
cousins and friends
And from what I have seen so far,
My granddaughters will be the same-and then some
But the thing about these women is
That when they grab the world by the lapel
They look the world straight in the eye and say
"How can I help"
That's my girls
And that's poetiquejustis
She reaches out to the needy; she stretches out her hands to the poor.
