WOMAN I AM

WOMAN I AM

A Poem by TheReal

Yes I'm young.
But I'm a woman
I know how to forgive
I know how to live
I know real pain
I gain. And lose.
I'm scarred & bruised.
My purpose misused.
She's raw. No filter.
Struggles that built her.
Define her strength.
Her foundation is strong.
She can't be bent.
She wont be broken.
You see her pain.
Her glare is killer.
She can't be slain.
Her name was given.
She can't be named.
Her fire inside...
it can't be tamed.
Only I can write my history.
Only I can speak my piece.
Only I know my whole story.
Only I can give me peace.
Ima piece this s**t together.Ima finish my own puzzle.
Ima make this s**t too real.
Y'all gon wish I had a muzzle.
Life's too harsh to be so subtle.
And I swear I'll never settle.
S**t, I'm at my boiling point...
Like some water in a kettle. Got Damn!
Do I have to write it out for you?
I tried my hardest to really fight it out for you.
I swallowed my pride and I cried every night for you.
I blinded myself. I impaired my sight for you.
But I don't hate you. I forgive you I pray,
That God is always with you, sending blessings your way
And to this day and every second I live,
I'll never let another disrespect what I give.
Thank You
Look what you've done.
I got the victory.
I f****n won.
And I got power.
Strong as the sun.
I load the bullets.
Into my life's gun.
So I'm killing all my demons.
And protecting all my truths.
I survived through deadly storms
I have wisdom as my proof.
I am the beginning.
Let these words work to defend me.
Cause I am too much woman
To let any being end me.

It's great, would make a good rap song. However you start out in first person, then go to third person, then back to first person again. I think it should all be first person. Also it seems to have two styles, The first style from the beginning to the line ..."only give me peace." Then the second style to the line .."I blinded myself..." Then back to the first style. Maybe it's just me, but that really stood out when I read it. Still, it's got rhyme, rhythm, good flow and it says so much, strongly! Great!

Mostly everything that I write is a lyrical piece. Not really "poetry" so I go off the top of my hea.. read more
Fierce and Fearless, I love it. Puts me in the mind of Christina Aguilera's Fighter (the live version). So much passion in your words.

A amazing poem. A woman is a mystery and if you are lucky. She may allow you in to see the secret parts of her. I like the detail description in your poem. You create a vision of a powerful and beautiful woman with your words. Thank you for the outstanding poem.

I lOVE THIS PIECE! GREAT WORD CHOICES. THIS IS SO STRONG AND POWERFUL! SO MANY GREAT LINES IN THIS. IT'S GOING IN MY FAVORITES! I UNDERSTAND WHY YOU WENT FROM WRITING IN FIRST PERSON, TO THIRD PERSON, BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU SET THAT PART OFF BY ITSELF, BETWEEN THE TWO, FIRST PERSON PARTS OF THE POEM.

Intense and deep, like the way the words are chunked in every line. This would be pretty good to rap:)

Good going!
