You are, I am.

You are, I am.

A Poem by Cœur

I am female.

My hair is short and straight,

Not long and wavy.

I drive a motorcycle,

Not a convertible.

I say the things I feel,

Not hide them for the sake of being polite.


You are female.

Your skirt,

Barely covering your a*s,

Is bright and loose.

Your makeup,

Always perfect.

You’re a flirt

With everything that breathes.


We are female.

We are the same,

But we are different.

Your view of love

Differs from mine.

You don’t care

What kind of attention you get,

As long as you get it.

I do.


Your lover grabs you,

Claiming you as his property.

Mine caresses my cheek

And asks about my day.

Yours forces you into the back,

Mine offers to drive me home.

Yours does not love you,

Mine does.


We are female.

But we are not the same.

I only take what I deserve,

You take everything you can grasp onto.

A great poem to empower young women, and also just an interesting piece contrasting human psychology. I think this points out important differences in men as well.

I really liked this piece, it just goes to show how many different types of people there are out there as well. Nicely done

Nicely done. Its contrast is definitely its strongest element in my opinion. There are the people that exhibit themselves for all to see, and there are others who wish to be only seen by the people that care.

You did a great job describing what it is to self-respect compared to having none. When you describe the kind of attention, it probably the most powerful section for me.

It was my pleasure.
This explains so much of how i feel about the difference between the two types of females. It was words formed for me in a way.

' Your lover grabs you,
Claiming you as his property.
Mine caresses my cheek
And asks about my day. '

How delicate and near fragile example of affection, love.. either or both deserved.

You are such a fine writer, truly are. I don't know if it's your imagination that's acutely powerful or if you're immensely observant. Whichever, - you feel atmosphere, analyse scenes, then create emotional and philosophical results as shown in your poem. Plausibility at its best.

The poem's innate strength reminds me of Whitman.
The ending is especially strong (though I think 'onto' may be redundant as 'grasp' implies it already, and the line seems to read better a bit shorter.)
