I Am Woman: Poetry Series

A Woman

You asked me what does it mean to be a woman?

I thought for awhile, in deep contemplation. I sat with my heart

I drained my soul with my tears, I feel, even with emptiness.

I walked through the fire and felt the pain ripple through

my sensations of sensitivity, I’m alive, even though it hurts.

 

I stood barefoot, grounded into the earth, I felt the power of stability

the unrelenting strength of deep roots, I’m centered

even though the wind calls me. I smelt the most beautiful rose

I was mesmerized by the essence of delicate aroma

of sensuality, I realized that beauty came in many forms.

 

There’s a naturalness to femininity.

To be a woman is to be, life

 

To be a woman, is all.

 

-Liem

 

Earth Women

All women are like earth

They may crack at times

but they’ll always be

Solid ground.

 

-Liem

 

She’s Strong

I’m a woman

that stands together

with shattered pieces

of what I’ve learnt

from just being one.

 

-Liem
