There's A difference Between A Lady And A Woman
Womens History Month
A lady is
timid, soft, gentle, and refined
She's often overlooked and scared to speak her mind.
A woman is
Lively, reborn, fierce, and focused
She doesn't need a man to accentuate her boldness
She knows she's queen and doesn't have to be told this
I don't want to act like a lady and sit quietly as the men talk
I'm raising my voice just like our ancestors taught
I'm a woman finally escaping this stereotypical box
A woman finally embracing her fierceness instead of looked at as soft
I can be a mother, a fighter, a leader, and A boss.
Men see us as ladies and miscalculate our worth
They hate to share the field and feel like we're on their turf
Well let me redo the math so that we're no longer divided
Ima add it all up so its not one sided.
Subtract the ladies and Multiply the women
Add all the movements that our ladies have been in
Carry over their suffrage and all that they've conquered
Isolate the opportunities that men had them squander
Those ladies who raised women and changed the equation
The ones who stood ready no matter the occasion.
Women are moving forward and changing the world as we know it
They aren't attempting to change the scales, but blow it
So next time you want me to act like a lady
To be seen but not heard unless I need a man to save me
Remember my words and the lesson that I taught you,
I'm a woman not a lady and I'm not here to exalt you.
