Can You See The Woman In Me? - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

I am a woman
Generations of life are born out of this mother
I am a woman
So often my wise opinions and words are smothered

And with open honesty
I speak with modesty
Your sweet kisses flatter
You are to me all that matters

But sometimes when you look at me
I wonder what it is in me that you see
I suppose you can tell
That I got brain cells

But I ask,
Can you see the woman in me?
Is it a task for I wear no masks?
You try to keep me penciled in a flask
Can you see the woman in me?

I am a woman with pride
My strength is a strong tide
My road is forever rough to ride
But when it is time to take sides
Behind dark walls, you run and hide

I am a woman with love
With pretty assets that curve
And when you give me the shove
I feel a thousand boxing gloves
Have hit me deliberately from above

I question,
Can you see the woman in me?
Come Sex! , my name is always mentioned
Some Vex! , when I try to be me and free

    The trouble is Sylvia that the older we get, people only see the outside image, not the young soul within, who still strives to be a woman, sexy, beautiful, charming and loved.
    Delightful piece and it says so much about us women and our lives.
