Roots of a woman

Oh daughters of Eve! have you forgotten who you are?

What you’re here for and why you have come so far?

Take a second to reflect on how deep your purpose goes,

You were admired back then as Goddesses.

The Creators of life,

Connected to magical Moon by your cycles.

Protectors of the kingdom,

Voice of your people.

Kings protected & avenged,

Queens were their conscience & council,

Awaken your royal,

Your revival is essential.

You were sent to give him life,

Save his life, enhance his life.

Advise his ego to see the heart,

Feminine life with purpose,

The revolutionary ones,

Having an impact on nations.

You are destined to be revered for your kind heart,

Gifts of life, intuition & foresight,

Yet you twerk for applause?

Don’t remember chronicles of your mighty cause?

Make him bow down in reverence,

Due to the beautiful essence,

Of your heart, soul and mental capacity,

Not through the movement of your body.

You have been proved as leaders & lovers, Stand up,

True goddesses fought their way back up.

You need to get again,

The glory you once attained.

Be the fire,

Feared but never afraid.

Earn it,

Don’t demanded it.

Never forget how vital you are as a human,

Don’t forget your roots as a woman.

  1. I so love the eloquency, beautiful imagery, fire and vitality of your poems! This poem is a heartfelt homage to real feminism, a word that has lately been perverted. I think feminism is nothing other than achieving equal rights, job opportunities and social duties for women, men and trans, where gender supremacy of either part is out of place. Thus your poem tells so eloquently of women’s right to have a life of their own, to be strong and not so co-dependent, even though absolute freedom does not exist for any human being. We are a gregarious species and a certain degree of co-dependency is needed to survive. The last two verses of your poem provide a beautifully strong ending. Loved it!

  2. Yes indeed. Almighty God made woman from man and made her incredibly magnificent. She completes man and multiplies his greatness, if she can only shed the repercussions of the fall in Eden.
