I am Woman by Aliyah Jacobs
I choose to be undefined, Undefeated but despised
Rejected, Dismembered, Disgraced, Maltreated.
But I am Woman – unafraid to be seen
I am me – a woman and everything that means
Warrior, Ruler, poet, Queen.
Boldly powerful, With a need to be seen
This is Woman – take a look and see
Object, Subject, Beaten, Silenced
But still undefeated; Queen.
I am Woman!
Possessing a powerful form.
Courageous. Spirited, Formidable,
She is woman and all that means!
Captain, Healer, Fighter. A Freer.
I am woman, a spark inflamed,
Crowned with glory – That is all of me.
She is woman, poet, ruler.
