I Am Woman

Written by: Louise Picek

I am woman.
Created to be beautiful,
but the world has degraded me,
made me less than what is true.
I was created as a helpmate,
but I've been chained,
enslaved.
A creature of timidity,
but forced to roar,
or it seems no one will listen to me.
But, I am blessed.
There is something more for me.
The creator of this creature,
who truly defines me.
