I am stronger than any Man,

because I am a Woman.


for every house He builds for himself,

I build relationships, networks, and models of love. 


for every college degree He earns,

I observe the universe from afar, and learn the deepest meanings.


for every bloody wound He bears,

I bear forth a living child. 


for every tear He suppresses in defense of his honor,

I cry a river, flowing with the pain of hundreds with whom I empathize.


I have accomplished everything He has,

while mastering my own feminine feats.


I can multitask and carry the burdens of others alongside my own,

while maintaining a serene and genuine optimism.


My arms might be rails compared to your brawn

But I, unlike you, can survive on my own.
