I Am Woman

I am not
A tenant in your family
That owes you rent for
being an added responsibility.

I am not
A bundle of vain charm
That needs to be dominated
and protected from worldly harm.

I am not
A child bearing machine
That keeps you well fed
And your house clean.

I am not
An ignorant slave of your desire
That lives to obey and serve
And ends up jumping in your pyre.

It is I
That made you a human
Feel my love; fear my roar
I am woman.

  1. I am reminded of Mary Angelou’s Poem, Phenomenal Woman which I taught in grade 12. Your poem has so many resemblances with it. I am filled with admiration for bringing out the woman in you. Anand Bose from Kera
