Woman Enough

We don’t want you to tell us,
how to dress ourselves or,
wear our hair or,
if we should wear or not wear
make – up.

Because isn’t she already?
Long legged enough,
with or without the stilettos,
or with or without
the short, short skirts that
accentuate, “to flatter who, you?”

We’re not walking around to be
some brazened ad that says
this is who you should be, woman,
it you want to be noticed, by a man,
if you want to be somebody.

Isn’t her bust to waist to hip ratio
already hourglass enough?
With or without needing to wear
low cut (unless she wants to,)
or tight fitting (unless she want to),
or more feminine, you say.

As though you were the expert
on women’s fashion, though
never dawned yourself such attire
that you might become,
instead of a person, to you,
an object, and an object of desire
that exists only to fill your eyes with lust.

No, to this, you can’t relate.

So don’t tell us,
how to dress ourselves,
or wear our hair or,
if we should wear or not wear
make-up.

Because isn’t she already?
Woman enough.
