I  Am  A  Women


At the moment of conception
it was final I was to be female.
I would be strong yet peaceable,
I would have pride and yet still
be humble. I would not faultier
in the wisdom I had gained.
and loyalty to righteousness
would be ingrain into my soul.
I would be caring, gentle and
above all else have unwavering,
and unconditional love for all of
man kind.  

I am a woman and I am, strong
for I have made it through many
a trial with my head held high.

I am a woman and I am, peaceable
because I will not tolerate violence
and promote peace above all else.

I am a woman and I have pride, for
I have fought for my freedom as a
woman and I delight in the satisfaction,
of my achievements as a woman.

I am a woman and I am humble,
for I recognize my faults and take
responsibility for my actions. And to
be chaste and modest in mind.

I am a woman and I have wisdom,
for I have judged all rightly and with
soundness of mind to the best of my ability.
And I have tried to learn from my mistakes.

I am a woman and I have been loyal,
and faithful to all persons, weather obligated
or not. I will support and defend what is true.

I am a woman and I am gentle and
caring, for I have cared for those in need
of a woman’s touch, and gentle to a mans
heart I have been.

I am a woman and I have given
unconditionally my love to all those
who passed through my life and ask only
in return to be treated as an equal.


By, Cerenity

Cerenity~

Wonderful poem. Wonderful format.
Let me be FOREVER WOMAN !

Lots of wonderful lines in here.
Virtues to be proud of ... wisdom,
humbleness, strength, loving, caring,
prideful, peacefulness, loyalty
I AM WOMAN !

*Can't buy the accepting or expecting rejection part though.  Nope, no way !
I AM WOMAN ... I do not accept rejection
even though we may get it from time to time ... I will use my strength to fight rejection.
Love ya' girl ... ~*Marge*~

Hi Marge,

In the last few lines when it says I shall continue to carry the weight of the world and except rejection I ment the weight of my world meaning family friends business ect.
rejection from my children husband family, and that even though they do not like some dicisions I make in certain matters I feel I have delt fairly with them. Should I rewrite it????

Thank you, Cerenity

In the sense that you have explained, Cerenity, no I don't feel you need to rewrite it. Some concepts (ie, rejection and the accepting of it) can have more than one meaning. I get where you are coming from with this. We can't force others to agree with us even though we know we are correct. Everyone has their own mind. This is a great poem, Cerenity.

Dear Cerenity,

I admire the inner strength and virtues expressed through this poem. Nicely written.

In every deed shall mingle, love."
