I am a woman


They doubt my desire

They doubt how driven I can be

I don’t doubt myself.


They look past my mind

And right to where it is held

I am a woman.


I’ve been mocked by men

And criticized by woman

Where do I go now?


Somewhere I can grow

A place to let my brain work

A lab I belong.


The world I will help

Styrofoam I will replace

And then prove them wrong.


I am a woman

I belong inside a lab

There I can show them.


I can prove them wrong

Although I am a woman

my mind is very strong.
