I am a Woman

by foreverqueen164

I am told what to do, based on who I am.

They keep me caged, With my wings cut, It isn't safe out there, they say, There are hunters, And its not their fault, I am just a bird after all.

They touch me, everywhere, They tell me it's because I am too pretty, They couldn't resist, It's not their fault, I am just a peacock after all.

They touch me, everywhere, They tell me I should be glad, I am too ugly, at least I am getting attention, It's not their fault, I am just a crow after all.

They tell me it's because I am seen at the night, I should have stayed in the tree, It's because they see me, It's not their fault, I am just a bat after all.

They tell me it's because I can be seen, Stay hidden, They couldn't resist, but that's because they saw me, It's not their fault, I am an ostrich after all.

I am small, I am young, I don't know what is right, I shouldn't complain, I am just a myna after all.

I am old, I am outdated, Let the youngsters lead, This is what happens when you open your beak, It's not their fault, I am just an owl after all.

They showed me their magic wand, Is magic supposed to cause pain? I am too innocent, what do I know? I am just a dove after all.

I flew too close to the sun, I dreamt too much, I shouldn't have, Brighter you are, the higher you are, The harder is the fall, I should have known, I am just Icarus after all.

I am weak, I am nothing, I should know, I am just a woman after all.
