VOF POETRY; MY FEMININITY

MY femininity is my dignity,
I guide it with jealousy.
MY femininity is my special privilege,
I don’t take it for granted.
MY femininity is my right,
It shall not be trampled on.
MY femininity is a dignified grace,
I carry it with pride.
MY femininity is my voice,
I speak out against violence and oppression.
MY femininity is influence,
I create the future I want.
MY femininity evokes valour’
I am an engine of growth and development.
MY femininity is the badge of courage I wear,
I am an epitome of verve and vitality.

MY femininity is life itself
MY womb is the storehouse of creation
So,
I deserve to be respected!
I deserve to be heard!
