I Am Woman (Poem)

I am not a hole to hide your infamous penis
I am not a pillow to rest your lying head

I am not a pawn in your pursuit of dominance
I am not obliged to play your game of war

I am here but you can’t see me
I see more than you could know

My secret garden is a fortress
Only wisdom can behold

I can’t find the strength to love you
My only strength is in these walls

Built so high that you can’t find me
Though they are invisible

I’m a shadow in your doorway
I’m the mat beneath your feet

Best beware of what you can’t see
I am woman
Bon defeat
