Because you are a Woman: A Poem


Because you are a Woman
You can’t be hard
You must learn to be soft
A Woman is soft
Because you are a Woman
You CANNOT be Stubborn
You CANNOT have your own Mind
Because you are a Woman
A Woman is not Stubborn
You must learn to always CHANGE
Your Mind
Because you are a Woman
You cannot express yourself
You must NOT say what you
REALLY mean to say
Because you are a Woman
You cannot be angry
Even if you are,
You must NOT show it
Because you are a Woman
You cannot argue
Even if you disagree
Don’t say it; Just agree
Because when you become a WIFE
You must not argue with your Husband
Because you are a Woman
You cannot talk back to me
It doesn’t matter if the other party
Is your colleague
You just CANNOT talk back to me
Because you are a Woman
You cannot go to another Church
What will people say?
Because you are a Woman
You must cook irrespective
Of whether you are tired or Not
Because when you become a WIFE
It will be a NEEDED skill
In your Husband’s House
Because you are a Woman
You must Marry and you
Must Marry NOW
Because you are a Woman
Your time is running out
So you MUST Marry NOW
Because you are a Woman
You don’t need to further
Your education
Too much book is not
Good for a Woman
Because you are a Woman
******************************************
On this side
I have been made to see that
Being a Woman is only
To my disadvantage
I can’t be myself
Because the way God made me
Has now become my LIMITATION
Because I am a Woman
I sometimes ask myself
Maybe something is wrong with me
Maybe I am not capable of
Doing something great;
And Becoming More
Maybe this life; the one
I have being limited to
Is truly the Life I am meant to Live
But No!
This is not it
I am more than this
I am more than what I am NOW
Because I am a Woman
I have been made for so much More
