I Am a Woman

I am a woman-

not just a womb.

I can create with my love,

but also create with my hands.

I can build, and grow, and shape, and make;

I am prolific as the Earth.

I am a woman-

not just a potential mother.

I have a heart full of love.

And I do love as a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a partner.

I burn from my deep devotion.

I am a woman-

not just a bearer.

Full of compassion and grace,

I care for my family, my neighbors, and myself.

I share my cup with many.

I am a woman-

not just a surrogate.

I think, therefore I am

a student, a teacher, a dreamer, an achiever.

As clear as air, I am human.

And, I am a woman.
