"A Man's World"


Why Should I be less than thou that did not create me?

Because I have honey thighs and a figure but lack certain organs "thee" are not "we"?

Nurtured like flowers in a garden we are raised to succeed, but not to over achieve.

To not act, but to believe. To hear but not be heard.

To sit and not to stand because we are inferior to the man.

And although behind every great man lie an exceptional woman we are considered weak.

Shut up, and pushed out forced to face defeat.

So yes my hips sway, and my hair blows in the breeze.

I am my name and not what is between my knees.

In the words of James Brown, " this is a man's world but it wouldn't mean nothing without a woman." that is true.

So yes this is a man's world but remember man...

Who made you?

- Kiara Alexis.
