I am a miss

I am a miss
Not amiss
Not a “ms”
I am a miss

You ask
Women’s rights allow us to be called ms
You say
It’s the female equivalent of mr
You state
It removes the importance of marriage

I get that
I reply
But, I am a miss
And here’s why

I’m not married
I’m more than happy for people to know that
It is part of who I am

So give me the right to tick the “ms” box
But don’t you dare take away my “miss” box
Because I am a miss
