I Am Woman - A Poem

Source

I am Women

I am more than what you see,

I am more than what you say I am.

I may be of flesh. I may seem to cower before you

But I am not weak, I am not lower than you.

I am women.

I go through hardships like you

I have experiences I have survived that you wouldn't even know,

Hardships you wouldn't even possibly think of.

I have daily battles with in my mind

And all of this experienced at a young age.

I am more than what you see.

I may have curves,

Body parts that are not of yours.

But I am not weak, I am not lower than you.

I am women.

I stand like that of an ancient tree of lore,

With roots in the ground not willing to give up yet,

Not willing to waste life away.

Your mouth speaks bile, words of acid

And you pump your body with things, slowly

Ever so slowly...

Killing it off.

And you dare speak down to me because of what I am...

No I am women.

My roots are strong and though days get tough,

Though I feel like giving up at times of trouble,

I never do. I make it through the day.

For I am women.

A strong poem and image about what it is to be a woman. I find this especially fitting, as I am currently reading a book on women in Afghanistan and it's so sad. Thumbs up and awesome.

Thank u. Conditions of how women are treated throughout the world are so terrible and nightmarish.
