Are Women Weak?


Around the world women
Are considered weak
Making them invisible




In most societies
Demarcation lines at front and rear
Women stand putting themselves in gear
Working in fear
'At home is where she should be'
But her inner eyes help her to see
That she will be free

Are women weak?
Doing the work of man
'Yes! they can.

Keeping the house from a band
Working as hard as any man
Are women weak?

Expecting nothing but doing everything
Enough to make ones heart sing
A goddess in her own right


Deeply crying in the night,
But never losing sight
Are women weak?

Taking up where the man left off
Leaving her the boss...
The unheard of she does

Her voice slowly whispers
'I'll be free the woman in me'
Punish me if you most


I can rise from the dust
Are women weak?
Having a child here and there

Maybe that is not fair,
And that make no delays
Even when the man is out to play


The best thing that ever
Happen to man for man
Is a Woman right in his hand


Given props to his plans
Thinking that world is his land
Forgetting of God's touch

Who loves woman just as much
'Foolish, foolish, man'.
Are woman weak?


Women suffer because men refuse to see
Woman is just like he
Man do not understand that


They are cool just keeping woman Fat.
Not in heels but in flats
Imagine that.


Are women weak?
The fear men have makes him strong
By God he know he's wrong

Still a woman works hard and long
Are women weak?
Woman no matter where you may be
You have a friend in me.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
