Poem: I Am a Woman

Photo credit: Caique Silva

I am a woman who dream.
I am a woman who love.
I am a woman who wishes to
smile everyday as the creases
of my lips try to keep a frown.
I am a woman who hope.
I am a woman who pray
yes/i/pray/for/not only
world peace
I pray for inner peace.
I am a woman who dare
to/live
even when life’s struggle
tries to sap away the joy of
living.
i/refuse/to/stop breathing
I refuse/to/give/up.
And if you could see the deep
pictorial/image/of/this
heart/of/mine
you would/only/find/that
I am /a woman
A simple
Beautiful
woman.
