I am a woman of substance. I walk with pride.
I have a style of my own. My elegance comes from inside.

I hold my head high; not ashamed of my past.
I am a real woman; a real woman at last.

No one knows the pain I’ve been through.
No one knows how I’ve suffered too.

I am a real woman. I can survive this race.
I can keep it together, and keep a smile on my face.

A real woman; strong and wise.
I ignore the jealousy; I ignore the lies.

I’m real and very true from the heart.
I’ll let you know this from the start.

Surviving the worst, and taking care of my needs.
I am a real woman; a real woman indeed.
