How I am a Woman

It’s in my hot tears of anger

it’s in my sweet tears of sadness

it’s in the overwhelming care feel

it’s in the deep resistance to control i exert

It’s in my thoughts that keep me up at night

it’s in the emotions I don’t have language for just yet

it’s in the instinct to protect

it’s in the instinct to provide

it’s in my power to create

it’s in my power to destroy

it’s in the instinct to speak truth

It’s in my yearning to relate

it’s in my passion

it’s in my eyes, my ears, my back, my legs, my hands

it’s in my words, my deeds, my prayer

it’s in my resilience

it’s in my faith

it’s in my knees

it’s in my weakness

it’s in my strength

it’s in my need

it’s in my love

it’s in my bellowing laugh

it’s in me

it’s all of me

 

that’s just how i am a woman
