Because i am a woman i am to be seen not heard, Ill keep my opinions to mysef because isnt that what im meant to do?Because i am a woman, I am beautiful, but thats all my able body can offer you because i am a woman, and that means i am to be docile and kind, lovely to look at but never taken seriously,Oh and always wear a smile because that is what the world whats to see, but that is not me.

I am a woman and because i am a woman i make these men fall at my feet like the daggers that have been so carlesly thrown my way but only flew far enough to barely graze my skin, because i am a woman i am the epitome of strength and beautyand i will not force myself to fit into your mold of what you believe i should be.

I am a woman and i will break free from your stereotypes of me, make my own way and yes sometimes i will stumble and fall but i will always get back up, i have been lost and stitched together, but no need to worry because i am a woman and i am strong enough to carry the weight of my own choices whithout it bringing me to my knees.

because i am a woman i am a force to be reckoned with, one you should never try to undermine because i alone can move mountains and cause storms so dont be so ignorant as those who underestimate me because i am like water, so be careful not to drown in the sea. 

-Grace
