Essence of womanhood

I am a woman,
trampled and withered so often.
But I fight back.
Second rate citizen often than not,
but I hold my head high.
Born to lead a dual life,
a seductress and a server…
Tired to the bones,I work day and night.
Yes I complaint,
but don’t regret being a woman still.
I am a mother,some one who creates,
The mother goddess,personified.
So I survive.I am born to struggle and survive.
