I am Woman hear me whisper

Updated on May 26, 2010

I can't consider myself a saint or ever cast myself as a victim

I have made decisions with the precision of a surgeon's knife

To you it may seem like chaos

To me it is all for a goal

An internal need to give and receive love

I am a vixen, a mother, a therapist, a preacher, a goddess

I have full knowledge of what I am and whom I wish to live with and love

and give all I have.

And I will give unconditionally , without fear.

I will support without cause

I will seduce without modesty.

I am woman hear me roar

And that roar may be as loud as a whisper

But with the effectiveness of a Lioness preparing for battle.

I have been victimized but not a victim

I took notes of all predators and exacted the vengeance of Zeus

I have been scorned but I mocked those pretentious souls

that sat so high above me that they did not know that

I was setting fires under their feet

I have been stolen from but the thieves have only stolen what

I wished for them to have

I am woman hear me roar

And that roar feels like a light breeze

but with the force of a hurricane

I have given birth to the future

I nurtured princes and princesses

I accepted kings into my bed and turned them into servants

I have produce lovers, charmers, and gentlemen just by my teachings

I am an icon

I am a movement

I am woman hear me roar and that roar is as commanding

as a flute but as forceful as a grand tuba

      Us smart men have realized the power women have. I am a student of the Bible and believe that men as a whole can do nothing without the woman that God gives them at their side. She is his protection against sin. She is his comforter against depression and sadness. She is his inspiration and his muse. He is filled with wonder at her body's movement, the sound of her voice and the thoughts of her mind. He knows her opinion is to balance his and is vital to him making the right ones that he has to make. She is a creation, perhaps God's greatest. Blessings.
