"Women Are..." (A Poem)

Constantly given name tags

They’re called complicated,

Emotional,

Fragile,

Weak.


They are useless,

Good-for-nothing folk

Except when it comes to being barefoot and pregnant

Covered in soap suds until their elbows,

Too big to get off the couch, too busy housing the next CEOs,

Lawyers,

Doctors of the world

Inside of them.


Wrong.


Women are their own individuals,

As good as any man.

Women are determined,

strong,

Powerful.


Women breed women,

Stronger in every generation

And every generation stronger because of women.


Women are undoubtedly prevented from achieving their full potential,

But women overcome.

They fight, pursue, win.


Women band together

Because strength is in numbers.


-Tvisha Goel
