To be woman
Is the flowing strength

This caring for others
Breaks my heart
But lifts me
And my curves
And bone
Smooth pelvis

What is different
Is my voice
More like a song
Or spirit
Than a masculine gruff
Not that I can’t growl
And bare my teeth
And burn

But my soft folds
Add dimension
And my million thoughts
A certain way that contrasts
Yin from yang

To be woman
Is the pulse
And wind
Melodic mounds
Of birth

No matter if her
Children are
Her words,
Her songs,
Or beings
That she tends.
