O Woman what are you?!
You are battered but you rise high
You are denied but still willingly you give
They hurl accusations at you for you to consume
And if you still don’t subside it’s acid fume
You take, you tolerate, you still laugh despite terrible fate
You fight for yourself with gut and dare
and for more women similar fates who share
I’m in awe of you, I love you,
Wait a minute, I too am you!!
