Unjustly a woman

Tell me, why do they want be to be softer

Quieter

Calmer?

 

Do they not know that I surf storms in my sleep?

 

Do they not think that I dare to dream

Of a destiny

that you have set me?

 

Tell me, why do they find me intimidating

Opinionated

Abrasive?

 

Do they not know that I run the race for my rights?

 

Do they not think that I long to lead

A legacy

that you have set me?

 

Tell me, why must they see me as blunt

Bossy

Bitchy?

 

Why can’t they see me as bold

Brave

Brainy?

 

Or am I not eligible for such attributes

Am I simply not privileged?

 

Oh how unfortunate that I was born a woman!

Unfortunately, I’m just a woman.

 

And the only other option I have is to be more than a woman

And that makes me not quite like a woman.

 

But I’m just a woman.

Unjustly, a woman.
