The Phenomenal One

Yes, I am a woman
strong and fearless
not soft and tender.

I don’t lie, for I am a woman
brave and bold
not afraid and cold.

I don’t cry, for I am a woman
a phenomenal one
not an insignificant pun.

I don’t annoy, for I am a woman
more subtle and quiet
not garrulous and clamorous.

I am not a tattler, for I am a woman
a little more wise
a little less belies.

I am not a fashionist, for I am a woman
more erudite and thinker
not stolid and sinker.

I don’t step back, for I am a woman
always ahead and decisive
and least bit derisive.

Yes, I am a woman
more proud than ever
more glorious forever.
