They say you can't be a traveler and a homemaker.
You can't be free spirited in nature.
They say you can't be an artist and a researcher.
That you can't be a poet and a painter.
I can be.
Don't push me into boxes.
Don't try to fit me into your plans.
Don't try to make me act like a woman you think I am.
I won't listen.
I will take your can'ts,
And turn it into cans.
And take your don'ts,
And turn it into ands.
The ands you can't stand
And ands you won't understand.
The ands that make me the woman that I am.
I'm not just this,
I'm not just that.
I am the sum of my ands.
