She is able to love and never hate, she is able to help you no matter what your state, even if you choose to discriminate.
She is able to survive living free of regret, because she is able to forgive and never forget, for she is able to be, to be a woman!
She is able to have petty and still survive. She is able to have strength no matter how much she is deprived.
She is able to live without living in greed, and she is able to live without a man indeed, for she is able to be, to be a woman!
She is able to feel your pain and frustrations when no one else can. She is able to have pride in being a woman and she would do it again.
She is able to know and feel when something is wrong. She is able to be given respect, something she has been deprived of way too long, for she is able to be, to be a woman!
Yet, hear me now, to me a real woman is one whom knows she is able, she is true and pure and always capable. She knows as well as she acts out, she knows what this game called life is all about.
As a woman, a real woman, she is able to be free, able to see the peace in another day. We are all able, but the ones without strength to act out just yet, hear what i say.....
I have faith in you to be a woman if only for a day, because i was able to be, to be a woman today!
