I Am A Woman, Hear Me Roar


I am a Woman,
Hear me roar,
I am a mother,
A daughter, A wife,
A sister, A lover,
A teacher, A student,
I am everything together,
So complete and yet so fragile.

What would life be,
Without me? I ask,
I am the birth giver,
One half of every child,
Respect me and the land,
Shall be divine.

For years now,
Misunderstood, disrespected,
By fools.
Rape, discrimination,
Uneducated, all this and more,
Speaks a lot, But not of me,
Its of people who don't know,
The power, the grit of a woman.

At times, I feel ashamed,
Of how people think of me,
And yet I know, I set
My Own Boundaries.
Its time I say, I stood for me,
For everything I am,
And much more than anything,
Anyone will ever know.

I am a Woman,
Hear me roar.

  2. "Woman is the protecress of life and creatrix too. She is the life of our life, and the soul of sweetness." says one of the renowned Tamil poets Suramania Bharati. Your poetry just reminds me of these lines.
