What “Woman” means to me.

Suprise! Here’s a new poem in honor of International Women’s Day!

In case this wasn’t clear, this blog is pro-feminism and pro-choice. I hope this poem emulates this properly.

An original poem by 
Coeur d’un poète.
Author’s noteHappy International Women’s Day! I hope you stand in solidarity with women across the world! Cherish them and defend their rights, because they are a big chunk of the world’s population, and we do need both genders of humanity to be strong to ensure global prosperity!”

A woman is not weak; she is strong.
She is the symbol of strength in endurance,
in the face of perpetual misogeny and patriarchy;
she is the present, and future, face of humanity.

So what does the word “woman” mean to me?
Absolutely not the absolution of a sexual essence,
but a being of choice whose voice carries weight
beyond the slander and sexism that sounds an imposition.

Beyond her skin, she’s a nation of personal choice,
that chooses when and where to lend her voice,
whose freedom is the key to common prosperity,
who defines her own self, and finds her own way.

She is the mother of life, the essence of wisdom,
that endures strife and spite to shine in her freedom.
For the world would be much less the greater
without her conviction that the world will be better.
