VOX Teen Poetry: What A Woman Truly Means

by share

What would it take
For a voice like mine to be heard
For a body like mine to be respected
For my potential to be seen

In ignorance
Society has defined who I’m supposed be
An illusion as to what a woman truly means
It’s barbaric if you ask me

The world has grown foolish
People have accepted what the eye perceives
Giving into this deception comes with a price
A price that accumulates overtime

Understand the capabilities of a woman
From her poise to her intelligence
Understand the necessity of a woman
Before you try to dim her light
