We are all women

She and I

The receptive and the active

The outgoing and the shy

As if God in his infinite wisdom

Had thrown us together

To lean against each other

In the hard times

To fight against each other

In the good times

Mother and daughter

Lover and leaver

Work, play, earn, spend

Curve upon curve upon curve

Strength and weakness

Betrayed and betrayer

And if we are a picture of failure

Then also hear the sound of success

In our laughter and friendship

I am woman, hear me roar.
