To be a woman,

is to be told
that you have to be
pretty or smart,
or your dreams will only come true
if you stand behind a man.

To be a woman,
is to know
that the moment you leave your home
you are vulnerable to judgement
because of what it means to be a woman,
as defined by those who are not.

To be a woman,
is to be told
that you have to pick and choose
how society should understand you
there is no room for you to be complex
it just makes you too complicated.

But from a woman who knows,
I can say to all women,
know that you are inherently strong
with all the negative experiences
you have endured
so far for being you,
you still imagine a better place
for yourself, your loved ones, and the world.

Thanks for stopping by.
