I Am a Woman

I Am a Woman

A Poem by Leindor
"

The title is enough.

"


I am a woman 

a new woman 

a young woman 

I enjoy picking flowers 

taking long moonlit walks on the beach 

and the occasional fart joke.. 


But I AM a woman 

a growing woman 

a learning woman 

I read romance novels 

study child care... 

and how to shoot a gun 


And yet 

Because I am not a sex stereotype 

He says I am not a woman 

a gentle woman 

a kind woman 


But what would he know about becoming a woman

about being a woman 

thinking LIKE a woman 


It's so much more than pansies 

and lilies 

and roses 

and posies 


VIOLETS! 


I AM a woman 

I am the carrier 

and the bringer 

of a new generation 

I am the soothing back rub 

after a long, hard day 


I am a provider 

I am a taker 

I am a Lover 

I am soldier 

I am a person 


...And I am a woman 

a strong woman 

a soft woman 

Mature enough to be around 

to educate those around me 

But not be bigger than myself 


I am a woman 

Look at me you men 

and learn from me you women 

Be your own woman 


I am my own woman 


And I stand before you proud 

Because I am a woman

damn, this is triumphant! every girl should read this, to show that having duality, being soft and being strong gives women a greater insight that we could all learn from. I'm surprised I'm the only one commenting on this so far, all on WC need to read this.
