I Am Woman

I am woman, I am strong,

I’m able to roar in a world of wrong.

I am woman, I stand proud,

I won’t be told what I am not allowed.

I am woman, I am here to stay,

I will not let your fear keep me at bay.

I am woman, I’m no stranger to hurt,

I won’t be assumed by the length of my skirt.

I am woman, I breathe your air,

I will not be judged by the style of my hair.

I am woman, I have a spark,

I won’t stop growing when you put me in the dark.

I am woman, I know I can,

I refuse to miss out because you’re the man.

I am woman, I have a lot more to say,

But for now, happy International Women’s Day.
