A Woman’s Place - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Many say
A woman’s place belongs in the kitchen
As if it a sin
That statement is pathetically mean
I mean why are we so keen
To have men as chefs

Gone are the days
When she’s only good in bed
Fattened up from being well fed

Now A woman’s place
Is with her child
To tame it from growing wild
Apart from flashing her smile and her eyelids
She’s a gem
She knows how to dance
And the true meaning of romance
To state a woman’s place
Is simply a hopeless case

A woman’s place
Is hard to say
A woman’s place
Is in her brain
She knows how to save your pennies
For the day it heavily rains
Saving you from losing face

A woman’s place is at work
For without her
There will be no sweet talk

Her place is also with her man
The guy who is her ultimate fan
She is the only one that
can soothe a mans disturbed mind
Her specie is really one of a kind
That melodic union she must span

A womans place
in this day and age
is one which we must embrace
Her changeless face
invigorates any race

    I am very much impressed by this poem. The woman has a special place. Men must love their love ones. Women must be respected no matter what roles they perform. (Report) Reply

    'I am woman watch me grow, see me standing toe-to-toe, as I spread my loving arms across the land. But I'm still an enbryo, with a long, long way to go, until I make my brother understand.' (Third verse of I Am Woman, Capitol Records 3350,1972) . And these words are still true today too. But men it seems still think they run the world with their (.......) and that because of that, women not having a (.....) is far inferior to the male. Well, I say that men should have to go through a monthly cycle, pregnancy, hot flashes, prejudice in the work place by being paid less for the same job. I would like to see a man raise a child the way a woman does. Oh maybe they can shop for food, clothes they need, clean the house so it is somewhat clean, and even make the dinners. But can they do it the way we can? NO! Men in my opinion should be in a case that reads, 'break glass only in case of reporduction'. Men!

    Sorry for ranting but men IMHO are worthless beasts that don't deserve respect or the the time of day. You have written this one well but no woman should have be second fiddle to her man or any man for that matter. Nicely written and it does read well.

    Love & hugs,

    A womans place should be, where she can share her many talents and work equally with a caring man, to make a loving home. A home like this is blessed. Bob (Report) Reply
