Because We Are Women Poem

by M.J. Waldock

Because we are women
We keep deep inside
The hopes and the dreams
We think we must hide.

We strive to be best
Make the top of the heap
Because we are women
The climb is so steep.

The ceiling of glass
A must to be broken
It only exists
Because we are women.

From morning to night
Multi-tasks we perform
Because we are women
It’s often ‘til morn

Because we are women
To nurture is norm
But when it’s our turn
We are left in the storm.

So wet are the tears
We shed late in the night
Because we are women
We don’t share our plight.

With anxiety high
Self esteem at a low
Because we are women
We don’t let it show.

Because we are women
There is power within
To believe in ourselves
We always will win.

United we stand
With strength and with force
Because we are women
Together on course.

The lesson we learn
Is the matter of trust
Because we are women
In each other a must.

Because we are women
We open our hearts
To the caring and love
That today we have sparked

Possibility abounds
Opportunity awaits
Because we are women
It’s all ours to take.
