Wow...What A Woman

Tue, 06/25/2019 - 00:31 -- csantam

We are frantic, unguarded, constantly anxious, forever-troubled,

either too-loving or too-lusting, always showing-off, moment-capturing,

obsessed romantically, very fragile, in agony from broken hearts, image-driven,

self-conscious, very passionate, self-kept, dependent yet acting independent,

idol-worshipping, refinely offensive, needy for embrace, attention seeking and

always grabbing, amazing, graceful yet strong, bearing babies who

like you and I come from. Women.

We are not appreciated enough.

We don't need to be recognized but women should acknowledge themselves.

It is important for women to educate themselves, influence themselves, vocalize themselves,

be confident in themselves, protect themselves, caress themselves, embrace themselves,

and should always always love themselves like no one else could and pursue in doing so.

We should keep in mind one more thing.

It is critical to be ourselves for ourselves and for everything and everyone that helped

create ourselves.

We forget who we are in attempt to be or look like others, but

our flaws are what makes us beautiful.

I don't want to be a pretty doll.

I want to be in control of my life.

I want people to see me as a woman.

I want someone to look at me feeling reassured and say...

"I'm glad.. a woman who loves herself"
