There is nothing in the world like a woman.


I am a Mother, donít ask me my name,
Iím just one of millions, created the same.
I give you life, I nurture your soul,
For I am a Mother and this is my role.

I am a daughter, donít ask me my name,
Iím just one of millions, created the same.
I bear the traits, of the Mother who bore me,
For I am the daughter, of the woman before me.

I am a grandmother, donít ask me my name,
Iím just one of millions, created the same.
Iíve pushed past the bondage, for my right to be me,
For I am a grandmother, liberated and free.

I am a wife, donít ask me my name,
Iím just one of millions, created the same.
I give you support, all the love you require,
For I am a wife, I give all you desire.

I am a sister, donít ask me my name,
Iím just one of millions, created the same.
I fight to be equal, amongst one another,
For I am a sister and you are my brother

I am a woman, donít ask me my name,
Iím just one of millions, created the same.
I wear many faces, fulfill many needs,
For I am a woman and this is my creed.

I would not want to live in a world without women. I have a brother who would strongly disagree but I love and respect all women, especially good poets like you.
