Spirit of a Woman

You live as caretaker,
You live in surrender.
You live for others,
You live with shudder.
You live to repair,
You live in despair.
You live in trend,
You live to blend.
You live to comprehend,
You live in torment.

When will they understand,
When will you take a stand.
When will they stop demanding,
When will you start commanding.
When will they give you space,
When will you self embrace.
When will they unleash you,
When will you cut through.
When will they relent,
When will you vent.

Learn to live "oh woman",
Life is too short a span.
