Woman Enough

I am
Irrational unreasonable.
Didn’t you see
The first letter I ever wrote
To you
About fears
And plastic chains
Tying me to a stake in the ground.
Didn’t I say how
I was
And am
Not so many things that I always
Wished
I was.
And don’t I tell myself
Every Day
How Irrational,
How Unreasonable
I Am.
It is enough that I know
Always
Inside this pretty shell that
I am
Just a Woman.
But I am Woman enough
Not to be called
Irrational unreasonable
By you.
