I Am Not A Woman...

I am not a woman that loves with a heart
I am not a woman that's silly and smart
I am not a woman with open wounds
I am not a woman that's more attuned
I am not a woman that you hold dear
I am not a woman that has no fear
I am not a woman that's loved or lost
I am not a woman that doesn't know the cost
I am not a woman that's hurting inside
I am not a woman that has no foolish pride
I am not a woman that can't look you in the eye
I am not a woman alone that cries
I am not a woman that's imprisoned with chains
I am not a woman that holds her will in vain
I am not a woman, or mother, or friend
or wife, or daughter, or one to depend
I am not a woman of all and more
Because I gave it away to the one I adore
what's left is all you see
Just a woman that truly believes

    I love this poem. It really speaks to me and where I am as a woman. I am a professional artist (#1 speciality, dance) and I have a show on the 28th of February here in St. Louis, MO. I wanted to know if I could use your poem to recite at the end of the program. Of course all credit will be given to you (verbaly and in the program) . It's fits so perfectly with the theme of the program. Please e-mail me with any question, etc.

    Thank you so much for blessing me with your experience through poetry.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
