Call Me Woman

I am the womb
that carries
a child to
be the promise
for a better
tomorrow.
Call me woman.

I am the hands
that touch
a fevered brow
bringing comfort
when pain
plays its drum song.
Call me woman.

I am the voice
that lifts
the spirit
when life
has stepped
on dreams.
Call me woman.

I am the tears
that fall
when sorrow
knocks at
the door.
Call me woman.

I am
the strength
the softness
the heart
the soul
the light.
Call me woman.
