If you let me play sports

If you let me play sports
I will like myself more
I will have more self-confidence
If you let me play sports.

If you let me play,
I will be 60 percent less likely to get breast cancer
I will suffer less depression.


If you let me play sports,
I will be more likely
to leave a man who beats me.

If you let me play,
I will be less likely to get pregnant
before I want to.
I will learn what it means to be strong.
If you let me play sports.
