I Am A Woman

I’m a woman
I’ve got long hair
I paint my nails
I’ve got curves

I’m a woman
But that gives no excuse
To anyone
To disrespect or shame me

Your painful voices awaken
The monsters in my mind
The torment goes on and on
The agony returns in increased proportions

I swore I wouldn’t let the ghouls
Defeat me, I’d win this
Still, their attacks break through
Seep through the cracks in my walls

Spitting venomous darts at my core
Ripping the personality away
Muting my once loud and strong voice
Nearing the point of victory, the
Monsters press on, harder than ever before

But I think back, I am a woman
I’m not your views of me
Your monsters cannot defeat me
I am a strong woman and
I will move on, I will stay strong

Though I don’t have you
I’ve got my own people
I’ve got ones whom I love
But most of all, I’ve got myself

My strength
My wisdom
My appearance
Just, me

This is an inspirational piece for all of my ladies out there. We are not powerless because of our gender. We are strong, powerful, and have voices that deserve to be heard.
