Just thinking..., Poems

I am a woman!

I am a woman!

I am a woman.

The world dictates,

what I should wear,

how long my skirts should be,

And my perfect size in centimeters.

I am a woman.

And the world tells me,

If I speak freely I am a flirt,

If I sleep around I am a slut,

If I don’t agree to what you say,

I am a bitch.

I am a woman.

And the world objectifies me,

For the shiny car they need to sell.

For the booze that needs to clear your head.

For their desire to be kindled I need to dress.

In skimpy, tight clothes that don’t fit.

I am a woman.

And the rules are set,

To be the perfect wife who cooks three meals.

To earn money to compensate the rising needs.

To be a mother, caregiver and a pleasure in bed.

I am a woman.

I take back my power,

To feel an equal,

To be respected because I am no less,

To be paid for my talents not based on my gender instead.

To make my own decision because I am equipped,

with grey matter inside my head.
