Femme - Poem by Noemi Lee
I would never ever want to be a boy.
I have many reasons, and yet none at all.
And isn't that how something is solidified?
I enjoy being a girl
I like smelling nice
like baby powder
no one wonders if I'm 'funny'
I like my smaller hands
I couldn't have these hands as a man
without people wondering
about the size of...
I like being able to know the difference
between puse and pink
and I like not being made fun of
because of it
I love the way my mind works
I like being able to:
express my emotions freely
talk about recipes incessantly
stare at pretty things
enjoy all kinds of art-
no holds barred
without being thought of as a 'wuss'
I like being able to read people
I like being able to decipher one emotion from another
I like being able express those emotions
without any special training
I like the softness of my skin
the curve of my hips
and the shape of my lips
I like being vain about my hair
I like being able to make a dollar
out of 15 cents...
I love being able to remember where things are.
I love knowing that if I am a mother one day,
I could be the influence of a nation.
I love being a girl!
Did I say that yet?
I feel sorry for the guys
they have it rough.
