Abstract


Yes, I am woman

Yes, I am woman

1 min 198 1 min 198

Yes, I am a woman.

And I don't talk about equality.

Because I bleed every month,

And you don't even realize.


You showed me your power,

And I acted as if impressed.

Because ya authority demands proof,

And you ensure it from time to time.


You took me in arms forcibly,

And I was shaken, silent, crestfallen.

But it was romantic for you,

Because the partner is property. Isn't?


I walked on coals with a smile,

And you watched my beautiful face every night.

I lighted your life and lived in dark.

Yes, I am a woman.


I have lived for years on this land

But I was loved by mum.

The only person who put me before himself,

It was my father.


I don't need your mercy world,

You have only seen my beauty.

I can take you down on one shot,

But I choose not to.


Every time I am hurt, I cry, I break down,

But I stand up again every morning.

Not with a cold heart,

But with more love and compassion.

Can you be me?
