Here's a hand to the girl who has courage
To do what she knows to be right;
When she falls in the way of temptation,
She has a hard battle to fight.
Who strives against self and her comrades
Will find a most powerful foe.
All honor to her if she conquers.
A cheer for the girl who says "NO!"
There's many a battle fought daily
The world knows nothing about;
There's many a brave little soldier
Whose strength puts a legion to rout.
And she who fights sin single-handed
Is more of a heroin, I say,
Than she who leads soldiers to battle
And conquers by arms in the fray.
Be steadfast, my girl, when you're tempted,
To do what you know to be right.
Stand firm by the colors of womanhood,
And you will o'ercome in the fight.
"The right," be your battle cry ever
In waging the warfare of life,
And God, who knows who are the heroines,
Will give you the strength for the strife.
I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem.
- Be honest! What, in your past, should you have said "NO" to?
- What would be different today it you had said "NO"?
- What, in your current life, should you say "NO" to?
- What would be different in the future if you do say "NO"?
- What daily battle do you fight?
- What daily temptation do you have to face?
