The girl who is chased

I will be the girl that doesn’t settle

I will be the girl who is won (and it wasn’t easy)

I will be the girl who doesn’t play games

I will be the girl with great expectations

I will be the girl who doesn’t have to be nice

Doesn’t have to say ‘yes’

Doesn’t always agree

Doesn’t need to look perfect.

I will be the girl who sometimes says the wrong thing

Sometimes trips for no reason

laughs too loudly

sings too enthusiastically

feels too deeply

I will be the girl who wears her heart on her sleeve

Who needs forgiveness

Who prays for obedience

I will be the girl who doesn’t wait around

Doesn’t rush into anything

Doesn’t search for approval

Doesn’t need to be liked

Doesn’t strive to please

Doesn’t try to entice

Doesn’t want to tempt

I will be the girl who loves tenderly

Touches gently

Smiles warmly

Cries earnestly

Reveals slowly

Fights fiercely

Speaks kindly

I will be the girl whose affection is constant

Whose heart is wild

Whose desire is pure

I will be the girl devoted to Truth

Who stands up for what’s noble

And despises what’s not

I will be the girl who is chased

The heart pursued

The mystery unveiled

The love procured

I will not settle (and neither should you)
