POEM| She is Woman

She is a boss
She is a home maker
She is a remarkable staff
She continues to prove them wrong
though she is perceived weaker
She is woman and graceful
and will rather invalidate stereotypes than encourage them

Every move she makes is a spectacle
her walk is graceful
her composure is impeccable
She exhumes confidence
it’s almost contagious
She is woman and strong
and will rather express it than hide it

You can tell
she chose the shirt
to match the colour of her eyes
just like she chose the skirt
to outline her curves
She is woman and feminine
and will rather embrace it than ignore it

She is not lost
She is more
She is everywhere
She is you
She is me
She is woman
