We are Women πŸ’‹

Poetry by SG and BB   

  

We are women

for whatever that is worth

We work your body, your minds, your hearts

…and the earth

We have produced life

from the simplest form

Pushed it painfully from our body

loved, and cherished 

until it is grown

We are thick skinned 

Role reversing without permission 

Blood hounds of intuition 

Sniffing out the cause and solution

Using our disparities as ammunition

Aiming at the future 

With a gut pounding determination

We are the fire 

Burning your preconceived notions 

We are women  

Compassionate creatures
least of course 

you demand we show

…our worst features

Loving wholeheartedly 

with all that we have

loyal to those

who also, have our backs

Saving the world

one broken heart at a time

Balancing a budget

on the slenderness of a dime

 
*Thank you BB– you are one amazing woman and yes you are right- us girls need to stick together*

      1. I love in “The Enemy” when she sings the line: “now I’m falling away….I’m falling away and I’m sorry Darlin.” Something about the way her voice sounds there gives me a lump in my throat.
