Don’t Tell Me I’m Not Woman – Kindra M. Austin

Don’t tell me

Brave & Reckless

Within my womb cells divide,
and fuse.
Brain grows. Heart grows.
Lungs grow.
Eyes, ears, mouth, and nerves
all form inside my sacred space.

Ain’t I a woman?
Surely Jesus hears my woes.
Ain’t I a woman, daughter of Eve?

Ain’t I a woman, one of His flock?

Don’t dare tell me I am not Woman.

I am Woman.

I am Woman.

I am Woman.
