#EdenLit - July 2012 Poetry: Simple Strength

Woman China Woman China
Simple Strength

i stand before you now
Not just as me
But as all women who have
Have ever roamed the this place
This place, we call home.

i begged you not
i begged you to
Come beg for my forgiveness
Unsure if I’ll even give it to you

Your words unspoken
Yet your hand so loud
i pick myself up up from the ground
worthless i am to darken you sight

Enough is enough!
I am through with cowering
I am through with thoughts
I am through with terror
Enough is enough!
I am through with you!!

Up
up off the ground
standing tall, eye narrowed, so cold
I dust myself off
To show you to the door

I have the courage of one
I have the strength of many
The weight of my world
Beats within my breast
I am a girl, I am a woman
No-
I stand tall just simply as

Me.

I love the way you use capitalization to show the sudden change. VERY powerful. Brava and give us some more!!
I am imagining you watching some of your students suddenly realizing their power as women...jus' sayin'.
