I Am Complex Because I Am Woman

Updated on April 22, 2017

I gave birth to a Nation

Watched as men fell to their knees and bowed down in honor of me

Take me as I am with all my complexities

I wear my sexuality like a badge of honor

I am your lover, your Friend

A warrior when it calls for me to be

Yes, I get angry and confused by constant lies and deception

And yes I cry

I am Woman

When desperation and fear drenched your brow with sweat

I wiped the beads and held you in my arms washing away the fears

I wear the scars of life from bending

Scrubbing floors, ironing, cleaning

And from years of toiling

I helped you in your struggles to become better

Walked beside you to give you strength

I bore the anguish birthing a generation

And lovingly caring for them and our Home

Because I am Woman

My strength my wisdom at times embraced you

And at times freed you to become who you are

When you lost your way I gently guided you back

You turned to me I was your lifeline

Your anchor from the storm

I am all things to some Men

Yet nothing to some

I am beauty personified the sensual moves created when I walk

The shyness of my smile

The come-hither looks that drive you to insanity

Screams Woman

        Beautiful thoughts on the feminine 'etre'.

        The power. The hard work. The hope

        The love. The patience.

        Mrs. Junko, (smiling), thank you for reading my prose, I'm sending positive vibes to you both for a lifetime of continued love and devotion. Excuse my message previously I was a tad bit exhausted when I wrote it.

        Juliet did you and my wife collaborate on this hidden truth. These words are proof that all lies die when the truth is told. I wanted to be the first to co-sign this before all the women showed up. If you don't get many comments on this one I don't know what to say to you. Beautiful woman in and out .
