We Are Women

DSCF3252.jpg

Grace, elegance, poise
We must look perfect at all times
Yet act as if, we woke up like this

Silk, lace, sheer
We wear close to nothing
Yet our skin is stronger than armour

Our power is underestimated
Our flaws used to discredit us
We must keep our emotions in check, or else

Petite, curvy, thick
We come in all shapes and colours
There is no such thing as one size fits all

We are fierce beyond doubt
Ferocious, yet still soft and delicate
We smell of perfume and blooming flowers

Queens, goddesses, heroines
We are the women of this world
Like it or not, we are the makers of the future
