Poetry: “Warriors”

A bit inspired by seeing Wonder Woman, I admit.

***~***~***~***

Warriors

Women are warriors
We bleed
Every month
As payment for our gift of life
Enduring pain
Is part
Of daily life
Yet men dare call us “weak”
Our courage
Is the same as yours
We fight our battles
Heads held high
Our weaknesses
Acknowledged
Made to strength
Balanced out
By the things that make us strong
We work as hard
With every fiber
Of our beings
We raise your children
Without a thank you
As you take them off to war
Then leave them to die
Yet we never cease to love
With hearts
Made tough
By the heartache we’ve endured
And still you call us “weak”
We women are warriors
And we’ve always been
