Women and weak? You must be joking!

February 20, 2007

A woman acts.

Weak, humble and docile

A touch-me-not and fragile

While beginning her life

That would have strife

If only she acted otherwise.

So what is the harm?

If she befools

Them who think to be

Powerful, strong and virile

And let them rejoice

In the fake world

Of illusory pride

That fills the male stride

With egoistic confidence

That they rejoice

Leading

A creature that needs

Support and care

To live in the world

But is she really

Weak and fragile

Can she not walk

That extra mile

That would announce

Her coming center stage

She can stand, walk, run

Can laugh heartedly

Jeer and make fun

Of all those

Who think of her as weak

But she has the heart

Rule her mind

Making her disposition

Gentle and kind

She laughs away

Under the sleeves

Stares hard

From behind the

Veil

And walks gentle

To keep the mantle

Of a woman

Weak, humble and docile

A touch-me-not and fragile.

    Nice Job! I love this so much and totally agree with the message about women being humble in athletics and life in general while many many men have this male ego of superiority. I hate that male ego. It’s a fake sense of pride.
