The Essence Of A Woman - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

much has been said about
the essence of womanhood
Miss Bulalacao says it is
motherhood. So the childless
one is not a woman anymore?

one must go back to the basics
of Plato,

the essence of man, which without
it he ceases to be one,

and this applies also to the
woman is

this capacity to think, which
if one surrenders thinking to
motherhood, or to greed, or
even to art, or lust
or luxury,

she ceases to be one.
