I AM A WOMAN

I AM A WOMAN

A Poem by sette
"

in honor of all the women out there

"
I am a WOMAN.
that needs to be independent
of the double standard
in today's society.

I have equal rights
as men,
I am no longer 
the geisha girl
that everyone thinks.

I have a place 
in today's society
expect that
I will defend my honor
come what may.

This is no longer
the stone age,
where YES is the only way 
to live.

I have every right
as the man next door,
so don't try my patience
çoz I will fight all the way.

I am a WOMAN.

At least equality! Having two daughters, I want nothing but the best for them.
I want them to be able to go as far as their abilities can take them. Like you, I
can't believe that women have allowed our current "leaders" to attempt to shunt
them back to the subservient roles they had in the past.

Historically women have had tremendous roles, but it seems that most history books
have been written by men. Granted Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, Queen Elizabeth I
Madame Curie, Harriet Tubman were all exceptions. How many more women would have made major
contributions if they had had the chance?

I truly hope that, finally, women are stirred up enough to shake up the establishment
and win their rightful place in our society.

Take care - Dave

A new world. Ain't a right one yet. New leadership set back equal right 50 years. I liked the energy of the poem and your words need to be. I do like the million women marches. Make the leader know. Women won't be second rate citizens. Powerful and worthwhile poem shared my friend.
