This is a piece that is laden with an emotional undercurrent of rage and a rebellion against sexist relationships where a woman with a mind and will (strong and confident) is overlooked, in favour of a lady who is just about material acquisition with little or no mental & intellectual content, having not a shred of independent opinion aside that of her man… No insult intended, “This is the real woman”-some people would argue. Well, I am the Other woman and I celebrate all the Other women, all over the world. We have dignity and pride, and unapologetically so.
Here is what I have to say, in the way I know best.
I craved for Affection,
I was slammed by your rejection.
In my humble simplicity,
You saw an Abject.
helpless and needy.
Wrathful, I stood out with a protest.
I saw your sightlessness,
Your presumed almightiness.
It takes just a second to turn a state
Rough in the raw,
To be refined into quality.
I was Ambitious and Desirous
I was Proud and Principled
I was Strong in Mind and Will
You craved a follower, a submissive…
You left Gold for Plastic.
I melt in pity for the unfortunate puppets,
Who gets sidetracked into your web of manipulation.
I am Proud and Happy.
I am Contempt and Confident.
At the end of the day,
It’s your loss both ways.
Thanks for visiting BlackWordz today, It’s a really complex world out there and compromises must be made but be sure of “whom” and “for what” you are compromising. Is it worth it? Because all that glitter is not valuable. I will be looking forward to your comments. Till next time, Chao!
