I Am Woman

I Am Woman

3 mins
665


I am a strong, independent woman

Let me repeat myself

You obviously weren’t listening

I am a strong independent woman


Regardless of the words you are telling me that "the sky's the limit"

When I know I can reach for the stars

But your actions are holding me back like gravity

A force meant to be defied


And I will defy your disrespect, mistreatment and misunderstanding

I am strong because I am not afraid to break a nail

To get down and dirty

In fact I will claw, punch and kick my way through your barriers to lead to the top of it all

To my destiny


I will break the chains of social injustice that restrict me

From reaching my dreams and aspirations

I will break free from the cage of your gender stereotypes

I may be a woMAN, a feMALE but you will no longer define me


I am a strong, independent woman

I am independent because I defy those old Disney princess fantasies

You see, I will stop my wicked witch, slay my dragon, and still have time to run my kingdom

I don't need prince charming to save me

And I wont be defined by my shoe size


I am independent because I can think for myself

I don't need Cosmo, 17 nor Vogue to tell me how to dress

I don't need the media to tell me how to look

I don't live in the Malibu Dream House

I don't come with accessories


I will never be Barbie

She's perfect plastic and fake fantasies

While i'm the real deal

I am more than what you see

I am more than my face


I am strong

I can endure the pain of my body being ripped open just to give birth

And underneath all the screams and blood splatter is a woman turned into a mother

I am more than my body

I am a temple that deserves respect


I am brought by Adam

But made HERstory by Eve

And none shall enter my garden

I am not a tool for your pleasure

I am not your servant, maid or chef

I won't fix your breakfast

I won't make your bed

My many uses aren't to be used by you


Don't call me baby, or babe

Do not undermine me

For I am power beyond belief

I am a strong, independent woman

I am strong because I am connected to my inner being

my spiritual surroundings and with life all around

Yes, I may live in my emotions sometimes, and you may scrutinize my expression

But I can walk with my head held high and a smile on my face


I have a voice

I have mind

I have a soul

None of which you can control

I will strike you down with my very last breath

Never hesitating to become the woman i'm meant to be

I am strong and independent

I am woman
