Not Anymore (A Women’s Day Poem)

Not Anymore.

I’m not cowering in fear,
not anymore.
I’m not shedding a tear,
not anymore.
You can try
But I shan’t cry.
You can scream,
It’s nothing but a bad dream.
I shall wake up,
Emerge stronger,
For I’m not meek.
This is me. My story. And it will always be about me.
I hold my head high, not you. Not anymore.


Happy Women's Day

Happy International Women’s Day to all the fun, fearless females out there.
Life, laugh, love on your terms and do what you do feel like. Even if it means being called names. Even if it means being told your place.  It truly is our time to shine and speak, and own ourselves. ❤

    Time that meekness wasn’t seen as ‘feminine’! Love your poem…
