Being a Woman – A Poem

Hey Guys,

Today is International Women’s Day and to honour the day I thought I would write a little something about what it’s like to be a woman. Enjoy.

Being a Woman

Being a woman is shaving your hair

Being a woman is letting your hair grow

 

Being a woman is having casual sex

Being a woman is abstaining

Being a woman is never having sex at all

 

Being a woman is being a mother

Being a woman is never having a child

 

Being a woman is having a strong group around you

Being a woman is being alone

 

Being a woman is being a feminist

Being a woman is thinking feminism sucks

 

Being a woman is having periods

Being a woman is using contraception

 

Being a woman is being put together

Being a woman is running out as soon as you get up

 

Being a woman is being family driven

Being a woman is being career driven

Being a woman is not having a care in the world

 

Being a woman is loving a man

Being a woman is loving a woman

Being a woman is loving who you want to love, if anyone at all

 

Being a woman is being natural

Being a woman is having surgery

 

Being a woman is conceiving a life

Being a woman is deciding to abort

Being a woman is having that choice

 

Being a woman is having a flat stomach

Being a woman is having curves

Being a woman is being comfortable in your own skin

Being a woman is making sure you get there

 

Being a woman is being put in a box

Being a woman is proving them wrong

 

Being a woman is being a virgin

Being a woman is being a slut

Being a woman is being a girly girl

Being a woman is being a tomboy

Being a woman is not conforming to stereotypes or labels that society pressures onto you

 

Being a woman is hard

Being a woman is strong

Being a woman is glorious

Being a woman is how you feel

Being a woman is what you make it

Being a woman is being you

 

What does #BeingAWoman mean to you?

Happy International Women’s Day!

It was rather hard for me to publish this post as it’s something quite different from what I normally post.

But, hopefully you enjoyed and will enjoy this IWD!
