Getting Nowhere


-unknown author-

On being a mother;

i shelter and protect, put there needs first

i lose myself and i lose respect.

this is how i became me

i am alone

so where has it gotten me

On being a wife

i gave him all of my life

i am a shadow of my former self

and he dares to tell me

i am not myself

this is how i became me

i am support

but where has it gotten me

On being a friend

i encourage and share my secrets with them

i lose trust and they unbalance my zen

and they say i act like

i am better than them

this is how i became me

i am therapist

but where has it gotten me

On being a co-worker

i work hard and play for the team

i get stepped on and passed over

i am depressed and never listened to

this is how i became me

i am angry

but where has it gotten me

On being me

I give the world a part of me

but i am shunned

and questioned, never given a second look

yet i give life, i give love

i think i am the lady, i am suppose to be

quiet, strong and forgiving

but with all this

this is how i became me

i am an unhappy me

but where has it gotten me?

She’s Beautiful…


Yes I am
An identity all my own.

I am X & Y

at the same time

Boxed by the ignorant, 

shallow minded and feeble

I have no self-esteem issues

Nothing wrong with me

Nothing wrong with the collection of things

I call “self”

self-concept

Nothing askew with my personality 

faults are in my environment 

I can 

I will 

rule the world

Positive 

Guide to the new century

The world is in its place 

where it needs to be

Revolving around me

They say I lost my “voice” 

To attract the boys 

Lost & misplaced myself  

to gain appeal

Stifling my opinions, interests & self worth 

We know 

I know 

esteem grows as I grow

I am far from fragile

Not conflicted

I am not fraud

Who dares to say “I… am worthless”

I am not ambivalent 

I have a higher moral resolve than all these boys

more ethical

I can express my opinions 

I share what I am thinking

Express what’s important to me

Essential to the blueprint of the future

Humankind

Share whats on my mind

I can be the cause of wars 

Transformed into a muse 

Suffered the timeless abuse

With a voice stronger than some 

Initial instinctual protection

I own my intelligence

Dabble in appearance 

That man can not produce

What I speak becomes truth

One day

They will look and say…

She’s beautiful…
