I am not weak.
I am a woman.
But I am not weak.
I am small and slight.
But I am not weak.
I quite abhor violence.
But I am not weak.
I turn my face from bloodshed.
But I am not weak.
I do not often raise my voice in confrontation.
But I am not weak.
*
I am strong.
I am strong like the sea and the wind and the trees are strong.
I am strong.
Stronger than you.
*
I, we, women,
Have withstood the tempest of your hatred and desire since time began,
And still,
Defiantly, quietly, determinedly,
Like buds in springtime,
We have grown and bloomed.
And blossomed in spite of your violence and ill-will.
*
I am a woman.
You know I am strong.
Which is why you must call me weak.
