Women

Woman Unknown Via Pinterest
Unknown Via Pinterest

On display for all to see

In all her rotund dignity

Women always get shown out

Never allowed to simply be

Matters not if thin or fat

Some[thing] they can just gawk at

Laugh or lust it matters not

Women only exist for the whole sorry lot

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
