The Freedom of a Woman
In this life all I need
is the freedom to be who I am as a woman, and not who society wishes me to be.
A woman of strength, dignity, and intelligence,
not hiding behind products that read: Unconfident.
With the ability to speak
words that make leaders tremble in their seats,
not the hush mouthed girl who sits properly.
But the one who stands in front of a nation,
and preaches peace on earth between all of the races.
Or to have a heart that travels across vast lands,
to feed the poor dying in hunger and exercise goodwill to all men.
All I need is the ability to achieve all that I dream,
for as a woman there was a time where I was told I could not do anything.
But as society evolved and feminine pioneers stood tall,
I gained the right to choose which path I will take, if not all.
All I need is the courage to face all who are against me,
and wish to tear me down because of my genetic identity.
To prove that I am more than just a pretty face,
I hold a mind so educated it is hard to keep with my pace.
So if there is one thing I have that is timeless,
it is the right to be a Woman,
which is ultimately.. Priceless.
