I dedicate this poem to all women everywhere - yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
I am woman The essence of life The creator and the cradle I am woman The feminine in all I’m the whisper of the wind The flex in a blade of grass I’m the scent of a flower, the flavour in fruit Of the awesome tree, I am the root I’m the ocean in the rain drop The depth of the sea I’m the power in the jet stream It flows through me I’m in the breath of my son The heartbeat in my daughter The sparkle in a child’s eye Never to be forgotten I was created to create, I am strong to endure Fragile to fall to pieces, majestic to rise again I am Woman, the ray in dawn This time I’m my only child To love, to soothe, to caress, To cherish, to hold close to my breast I am woman, the thread of humility The wise, the only mother of humanity Without me, man would be no more With man, I am woman forevermore I hold Earth in the palm of my hand I am becoming. I have become. Woman I AM. -by Marta Stanczyk
