There are two kinds of goody-two-shoes kids in school. Those who suck up to the teacher just so they could get good grades, but who aren't that much more talented or smarter than their classmates.

Then there are the goody-two-shoes who are constantly asking the teacher questions and going out of their way to complete extra assignments, not because they want recognition or a pat on the head - but because they're really about bettering themselves for the sake of bettering themselves.

Now I'd be betting that the 3rd grade student this anonymous teacher claims wrote this beautifully feminist poem is the second type of kid mentioned above.

The poem reads:

The true feminine
I am not sugar and spice and everything nice. I am music, I am art. I am a story. I am a church bell, gonging out wrongs and rights and normal nights. I was baby. I am child. I will be mother. I don’t mind being considered beautiful, I do not allow that to be my definition. I am a rich pie strong with knowledge. I will not be eaten. 

It's kinda hard to believe that an 8-year-old wrote this, but whether it's real or fabricated isn't Twitter's concern: people just love the poem's message.

And as for people who still doubt that kids can be capable of poetry this good, apparently, kids are almost always better at it than adults.

Maybe it's because they haven't been bogged down by bitterness and inactivity yet?
