I AM WOMAN

Call me what you want, but I know who I am;

I am her, who wakes up before dawn, and does not sleep till the house is quiet;

I am her, who bears the pains because she knows that the future is what she births;

I am her, who fights for every of her children and never let's go till they are safe;

I am her, who shoulders the weight so you can stand tall and proud;

I am her, whose tears are only seen by the night and meets the morning head on;

I am her, who will never quit, never stop, never faint, till she is heard;

I am woman.

strong!

Rhoda,

How strong! And even stronger that you've voiced the vulnerability behind the strength of the woman in your poem. Vulnerability is sometimes even more difficult than a brave face for the world. Amazing!

Wishing you peace,

Kelly

beautiful and touching poem

I am glad to have come across your poem. I must say it is a gem.

I only wish people would contemplate, reflect and take actions thoughtfully and compassionately not with haste emotionally charged. Those who act emotionally charged are only able to fix the surface layer and not at a deeper level.

I resonate with this poem as it deeply touch me reminding me of my mother.

Wish you all the best, Rhoda

In friendship
Amei
