I Am Complex Because I Am Woman

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


It is a self-reflection, if I were an Artist it's how I would paint myself. I cannot paint nor can I draw so I write.
