Because A Strong Woman, I Am
Indeed I still struggle
Swimming upstream with might
Never giving up on what I care for
Because a strong woman, I am
You might use your jagged tongue
To tear me down for what I do
You are so cruel and judgmental
Is it my strength that bothers you?
I wept from your harsh words
That took me by surprise
In front of other guests
Embarrassed I sure was
Instead of wheeling and dealing,
Writing poems and stories, too
You think I should stop it all
Does my independence bother you?
I work full time at school and in my home
