Because I am a woman.
I won't claim to be a man.
I am weak and I won't claim to be strong.
I am so weak that I smile through pain.
I glow when hurt.
I am broken but I rise yet again!
That is it!
Am a woman.
Though I appears unnoticed but my presence dominates!
Of course I am delicate and so soft
Because my strength lies in my weakness.
I am a she-role and am never gonna be a he-role.
I do break down!
Most times in tears and sometimes in bed.
I do not seek to rule the world.
All I seek is to rule my world.
Am a woman before anything.
My silence is my weapon.
I do not fight with sword,
But I win with words.
I do not speak to be heard.
But I work to lead.
Because am a woman
I won't let my boundaries be set for me.
I will rather set mine. Though I won't go beyond my capabilities.
I won't sit to be told my place is home.
I will rather work my success from home and succeed beyond!
I won't wait to be tell my roles!
I will work to me make a role!
I won't stay in front of men and lead them around.
I will lead right from my angle and lead beyond.
I will do my best and try the rest.
Yet, I won't loose my delicacy as a WOMAN.
I won't let my softness slide!
I will cherish and adore my weakness!
My compassion will always be part of me.
I will love the world and cherish my words.
I will even celebrate my breakdown.
But I will never loose my WOMANHOOD!
