A Poem to Young Women

My oldest daughter likes to write short stories and poems. She is a typical teenager so i don't get to see her work too often, so I was honored when she shared this poem with me.
Young Women by Jasmin

Young women are now being categorized as
Being disrespectful, showing too much cleavage, and having no class.
They say we disrespect our bodies and ourselves
Older women looking in disbelief and their hearts melt.
But wait......................
Some young women are leaders and strive for better opportunities.
Some young women respect themselves and their bodies.
Some young women come to be Secretary of State.
Some prefer education and being safe.
There are young women who will run for president.
Confident and standing in an honorable stance.
Dignity and respect filling their hearts
Striving to do great from the start.
So why can't we be seen as honorable women standing firm like concrete?
When each and every young women has a different personality.
I would like to be remembered in life for my good done on this earth.
Because negative was never in my vocabulary even from birth.
I was born to achieve great things and that's what I shall do.
I am a confident, respectful, ambitious young woman.
Are you?
