What It Means To Be Female

Poetry By: Charlotte Jayne

Just a few of the qualities that define women. A stark contrast to 'The girl upstairs'.

I am woman.

I embrace my existence

And what is rightfully mine.

My form is perfect, not for you, but I

I can dress it and bare it, orwear a disguise

I'm a thousand people, all moulded as one

My curves are accepted, they shape who I am

My mind is loyal and my heart is true

I prevent the world from feeling too blue.

I seek honesty, and sometimes advice

I may make mistakes, but not make them twice.

Never too proud to make amends

My will is strong and my dreams live long

Feet firmly on the ground, wool torn frommy eyes

If you hurt me, I'll heal. You can't shatter my spirit.

Women of the world, understand why your here.


Strive for the stars, but remember each cloud passed on your journey.
