a woman Poem by mathilda maphori


why do men act so devilish when it comes
to taking care of their women
why do women always get so violeted
and exposed due to their sexualities
why cant people mind their own businesses

being attracted to other women or should i say
being homosexual
does that do any harm to anybody
does that say that i should be discriminated against

why cant men learn to take care of the women in their communities
being a women means being equal to men
and therefore no one should be offended
i am a woman and again i am human
i also have feelings
and i can feel when im happy and when im hurt
i am a woman with ambitions
and i derseve love and respect
nomatter how i live
this is my life and my responsibility
