A Woman Like Me Poem by Nasra Al Adawi

A Woman Like Me

Rating: 4.8

I have the will,
To touch the sky
And I do not need any wings
Enabling me to reach that high
Defeat has no definition in my brain
I have the aspiration; I’m set to seize that dream
A woman like me, will reach that far and many miles more..

Maybe, you will find tears
Held in my eyes
Or falling like river
On a terrain of my face
It’s a momentum relief
Giving no answer to resolve the grief
I gather myself
In dignity I embrace
A woman like me, had learned to stand beyond any calamity

Dear Nasra, really this poem is thought provoking, the poetic persona whether the actual you or an imagined one- is a mellowed feminine voice- quite unlike the phase it has reached in developed societies or cultures. The bold will to assert one's self is really admirable. Rajbir
