I Am A Woman


My eyes hurt 
My back is pained 
I am a woman. 

I work hard 
I play hard 
I am a woman. 

I drink pints 
I drink wine 
I am a woman. 

I like dresses 
I like shirts 
I am a woman. 

I eat pizza 
I eat cake 
I am a woman. 

I go running 
I go boxing 
I am a woman. 

I like guys 
I like girls 
I am a woman. 

I bleed 
And I argue 
I am a woman. 

I take the bins out 
I cook the dinner 
I am a woman. 

I have sofa days 
And I fart 
I am a woman. 

I am married 
I am not 
I am a woman. 

I am sexy 
I am cool 
I am a woman. 

I sing 
And I dance 
I am a woman. 

I want kids 
I don’t want them 
I am a woman. 

I scream 
And I smile 
I am a woman. 

I read books 
I write poems 
I am a woman. 

I am hard 
And I am soft 
I am a woman. 

I walk tall 
Can feel small 
I am a woman. 

I have muscle 
I have brains 
I am a woman. 

I am chubby 
I am skinny 
I am a woman. 

I wear make-up 
Or I don’t 
I am a woman. 

I’m an actor 
I’m an actress 
"I'm a woman 
Phenomenally. 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me."*
