When you put me down instead of lifting me up, your pitiful try to denigrate my character hasn’t worked.
Or when you see the colour of my skin rather than my talent, your attempt to belittle my soul has failed.
Maybe it’s because you think I don’t have the intelligence quotient to register your sarcastic and patronising tone.
And when you relish in my setbacks, my failures, my up hill struggles, rest assured that you count me out prematurely.
Now, remember this, I may be quiet and reserved but I am a lioness and will call you out if I feel there is a need to. I choose kindness, positivity and upliftment, so others can also overcome their challenges.
I am W O M A N.❤️
