Woman, Human

I am woman. 

Life & death reside in me

Creation, betrays me

Steals my youth

With harshest truth

I am hurt

Beneath the skirt

Trials by fire

Stolen desire

As a child

Wicked & wild

Dancing through the trees

Forced to my knees

Made to say please

I am human

Abreast upon the land

Stripped by rough hands

Shadowed sands

Erased demands

I am woman

I am human

Awaiting transformation

Strength, my definition

Releasing this trance

Trembling stance

Seeking what is

Joyful metamorphosis
