The Woman - a poem.

The Woman

by shaniahugarte

I am a woman So you should stay away

Far, far away Don't come closer, Don't you dare

Don’t lay your brutish hands on my thigh

Don’t call my name like it’s a song Don’t ogle my body like it’s a fucking statue and presume - you have a right to it

I am a Woman

Not a rag for you to dirty and disregard in an alley

I am a Woman

And if you have the audacity to say That I asked for this blade That my doe eyes beckoned and my swaying hips were too tempting to resist Fuck you.

I am a Woman

and you may break me You can bend me over and watch my bones crumble into dust You can destroy me in every way you can imagine

But I will still be-

a woman. I will still be tall I will still be proud I will still walk with my head held high

Because I will always be - a Woman.

But you-

are no longer a man.
