Woman

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

A name….
That defines me
I look fragile
So that I appeal to you

Unexplored
Mis- understood
I am a mystery to be unfolded
Unsolved puzzle
I am gods creation
I am a woman

I cry when I am happy
And conceal my tears
When sad
I love unconditionally
I always have lot to give
You don’t notice my tears
You can’t see the pain
Hidden behind my smiles
Because….
I am a woman

I thrive on little pleasures in life
You look for the bigger reasons in ME
And then you call me complicated?

I am a daughter who stays by you
A sister who lovingly embraces you
Wife who passionately loves you
A mother who stays awake all night to comfort you
Friend who holds your hand when the world shuts the doors at you
I am a woman

I look after your parents
At times, forget I have mine
I bring up your children
Under your name
Forget, I bore them for nine months
They are mine…
I felt them everyday in my womb
I pained when in labour
But that’s me
I am a woman

You snatch that smile at times
Make me feel, inferior to you
A mock that says I am small
Physically battered at times
Mentally abused
Psychologically slaughtered

You pick me up from the road
And ease your nights
You don’t realize I bled
Every time you forced yourself on me
You protected your sister
You forgot I was too…
Someday….
I can take this too… For
I am a woman

But actually…
You are incomplete without me
Even the word “WO-MAN”
Engulfs the MAN within her

I can be a father to your child
I can be the provider
And yet I make the house into
What you call a “Home”

I am far superior to u
God created us….
But I created you
I bring you into this world
I could have chosen not to….
Like you took away my girls
I am the reason
For your existence

I am a woman

(This is a every woman’s story)

Lovely poem. This reminds me of the struggles of the mid twentieth century feminist movement. I think its interesting that these points are still being made in 2010. Another interesting point is that men rarely ask what it means to be a "Man."...

Thanks Joshua... I am glad you have likes this piece. Yes you are right... there are very few compositions on "men" or man's mind... may be we can look into it... what say?

I love the words you use to describe the "little feelings" and as a woman myself I feel every single word in your piece. Thank you, for this is definitely food for the soul!

I am far superior to you-God created us but I created you. This is truly a well thought out verse with much truth in it and deservingly so. I will now go back and hide in the couch cusions (that you picked). All kidding aside although we are best...

I am far superior to you-God created us but I created you. This is truly a well thought out verse with much truth in it and deservingly so. I will now go back and hide in the couch cusions (that you picked). All kidding aside although we are best as a team, as a man I know how much more you bring to the pallet. Great insight.

Thank u so much Vangoman for your appreciation. I did not want to exhibit a Woman's superiority, but highlight certain facts as they go un- noticed @ times.
