happy birthday to me

happy birthday to me.
happy birthday to me wearing my pink pussy hat,
I'm ready to march with my sisters and brothers
for a better world where all can live freely
in this beautiful land of opportunity.
happy birthday to me,
the little girl who could
in spite of many obstacles
yet receiving the gift of living in this country, 
of receiving help along the way.
I could never have done it alone.
yes, I celebrate my birthday with the man
I love, the third time is the charm.
happy birthday to me,
I celebrate all the gifts which have been given to me
without me even asking.
thank you to the world.
