I am a woman

I am a woman I’m not fragile I’m not made of stone either I may be likened to a rock Flesh and blood is all I am I love completely but I’m not a fool I protect what is mine but I’m not selfish I am a woman, a pillar to my family Man don’t value our role They ridicule our femininity I suffered dominance in their hands My femininity they used disadvantageously My feminine is not a frame for my abilities I am a woman and I can defy the odds Rivalries prominent today shadow my novelty My God given position does not make me diminutive Fifty-fifty rule creates awareness of my capabilities Corporate roles outline my abilities After all I am a woman Respect me for what I am Don’t be intimidated by my achievements They are not me but my ways to earns meat I am a woman
