A LIBERATED WOMAN

I am a woman,

Yes I am a woman

A woman who forms part of the makers of human kind

A woman who nurses and makes sure humanity continues

A woman who refuses to be suppressed by heart wrenching relationships

A woman who weeps for the sufferings of her ancestors

 

I am a woman

A woman who refuses to be humiliated

A woman who refuses to work for someone to take the glory

A woman whose fortune lies not on tall beds and clothed holes

A woman whose hands work to feed her

A woman whose main wish is to make the world a comfortable place for her wards

A woman who will not be insulted and made a slave

Only to die a pauper

 

I am that woman

That woman who rocks your brains but not your cock

That woman who speaks with eyes wide opened and not half closed

A woman who refuses to be the enemy of other women

I am that woman who wants to be the change

I need in this world

So look up

Look into my eyes without taking offense

With respect while we engage in this discourse.
