woman

by allyson - Gemini

I am a woman
in my short years walking the earth 
my heart has been tested 
along with my strength.

I have seen the good in many
the kindness of strangers
the evil of men
the glorious light produced by nature.
my heart has loved 
my heart has hated.

my body has been abused and
tainted.
but the most amazing thing has happened..
my feet have kept walking
my heart has kept loving
my eyes have kept seeing the inspirational moments 
and turned a blind eye to the most horrible indeed.

my body is healing along with my mind.
I am a woman
not a follower but a leader of many alike.
proud and tall I stand against wicked men
today is the day we all stand together 
taking back what our grandmothers taught us.
we give life...
we teach...
we heal....
we love unconditionally.
we will not back down.
I am a woman.
