Big Woman Ways – a poem #internationalwomensday 8.3.18

“Big Woman Ways”

The child is maturing she’s beginning to grow

Her big woman ways are starting to show

The clothes that she wears and the mask on her face

Applied with such seriousness, it’s all that she craves

The boys that she fancies and the friends that she hates

For liking the same boys, well that’s her mistake.

For when she’s a woman, she’ll come to fast learn

That losing a friend, to a man, gets you burned

The lessons of life are carved from these years

So choose your friends wiselyand reject all your fears

For nothing in life is as bad as it seems,

The years mold us gently and we roll with the tears

They form us and shape us into warriors of life

They make us strong women, friends, partners and wives

They carve out the way to deal with life’s troubles

And then pay it back into something that’s doubled.

So put on mascara, be bolshy, be bold

Be a big woman and let life unfold
