I am the footfall on the stairs I am the caress that soothes away your cares! I am the the sunrise in the east I am the breeze that calms your fears, the inner beast!

I am everything I want to be I am independent of you so no more can you hurt me. I am the worker and the mum I am the singer  dancer, actor, writer of my deeds I am the sum .

I am the light in your eye when you want sex I am the slut you see with the subtext. I am the one who raised you and made you who you are I am woman  my connections reach near and they stretch far!



I am the reason I get up each day I am so full of words that I have to say. I am power beyond belief I am colour and light I am unbounded joy and I am bottomless grief!

I am anger I am rage when I write you turn the page. I am female I multi-task I know everything  you need to know, just ask!

I am a fighter, my offspring I defend to the death. I am a protector, what is mine I will defend to my last breath. I am me I do it all and more. I am here on me you can depend for sure!

    This poem is so beautiful. Being a woman means all this to carry on all the titles and worries, but yet be graceful.

    Indeed, the roles of human females on this planet throughout history are included in your powerful poem here today, Willow! There is also a certain implied lightheartedness here which heals me of my fretting over multi-tasking right now. Blessings on you, strong one.

      I am so pleased that my words have affected you in a good way. Yes women have the brunt of many rules and religious taboos. We must all stand up for what we are and what we believe! Be well be happy and be strong! 😀 xx

    Great poem, willow. The constant repetition goes back to the poetry of the ancient Celtic bards. You use that method well. The message of the poem is powerful.
