I Am Woman
By: Debra Sue Higginbotham (Yes, that’s me)
I am woman, hear me roar.
Watch me stumble. See me soar.
Feel my presence. Sense the heat.
Applaud my path, or take a seat.
I am not subtle. I am not shy.
I make no apology, if you ask why.
I may not be, their cup of tea;
And that’s okay – – I can only be me.
Marching to a beat, of a self-made drum.
I may dance or jump or sing, or just hum.
I drive the dirt roads, with wind in my hair,
Inhaling the presence – of life debonair.
I am female! All heart, body and soul.
I seek new heights; as I set a new goal.
I look for light – where others see dark.
I shift into drive – as some put it into park.
I may turn it up – just as you’re turning it down.
I say Love is a verb. Others will call it a noun.
Some folks believe in luck. Me? Well I do not.
I believe in blessings. And giving it all I’ve got.
Tell me that I can’t. I will tell you that I can.
Knowing with clarity, my dad is my biggest fan.
Mom is up in Heaven, with cheers that do ring loud.
Yet I can only pray, that I make them both so proud.
I am woman. You will hear me roar.
Even if it starts, as a whisper in my core.
I am female. Every piece and every part.
If you hear my laughter. Then, you do see my heart.
As always, make champion choices,
