That’s Not Lady Like

Why must we be condemned by traditional conservatism?

A woman’s efforts to obtain the equality and respect

similar to a males status seems that of unfamiliarity. 

Thus, leading us to the question as to why females should kneel to conventional ways

and be expected to live aversely to tradition. 

Being a woman is 

empowering. 

Being a woman is the meaning of life. 

Why are men allowed or even 

applauded

to treat us like our worth is inconsequential?

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
