Strong Woman

Fri, 11/16/2018 - 14:11 -- N2QM

We have been told.
For the longest time.
That we are inferior to men.
That we can't do what they do.
That we weren't meant to.
But I will tell you what we were meant to do.
To fight, to show our worth.
Show we can do anything.
Prove we are men equals.
Superior, not inferior.
That we can be leaders like our woman ancestor from Africa.
So as we fight for equality.
We come so close.
But yet we are not there.
But one day we will.
