But I’m A Woman - Poem by Tsira Gogeshvili

(magram qali var)

I’d have been a good dog
To the devoted master;
I’d have been a worthy horse
For the rider – good and bold…
If I were a flower
I’d be called “Violet”,
And – “Sparrow”
If I were a bird.
If I were water,
I’d babble like
A mountain brook…
But I’m a woman,
Not noticeable,
And not overlooked.
I’m not a dog,
But I’m still reliable…

Translated from Georgian

    But I'm a simple man
    One on whom you must demand
    The love and trust that is due
    To a woman such as you.

    Yet, when the end comes near
    There is much to fear
    For each has tried to be alone
    Leaving much for which to atone.

    Neither man nor woman, we are person. This is a wonderful poem expressing the gender issue in a poetic manner. My 10 for it. (Report) Reply

    This is a rather plain poem, so I gave it a plain score. There
    are a few nice lines in here but that's about it.An interesting
    opening and closing with a dog. I suppose there is meaning there.
