I Am Women


I am women
Empress
Daughter of Afro Caribbean roots
Full figured
Ebony coco brown
is my
Exterior
My Face oval shaped
Eyes wide
Resembling moon
Lips almond
sideways
Hair as deep as indigo
black
Short
I stand
5”8 feet tall

Un perfect in many ways
I have desires to seek all within my soul
Penetrating the spirit which resides
Within

Mother
I do all to provide for my seed
I cry
when the pain and struggle is too much to bear
I laugh
Controlling my frustrations when
Pushed by the lips of my young
transcending through to the other side
I am Women
I am women

Hurt
Disappointment
from all directions
Has been a visitor
Yet I over come
And continue
To live
I have desires
To become that women
The women who lives
inside my dreams
the one no one but I can see

Beautiful
Graceful
Powerful
S ecure
A women of courage
Happy
Motivated to challenge myself until
success
is what I posses

I am women
I am Women
Inspiring many
I’ve fallen at the hands of abuse in ways only few have
Been informed of
But it shapes me into my transcending transformation stages to
Rise
Rise
I am women
Seen through these eyes
Hate
war
rape
domestic Violence to those who could not defend themselves
I am women
Wonderful

I am women
I am women

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
