This journey here has been a lesson learnt
Though very hurt I stay unbent
A better person I’ll strive to be
A better woman is what I want to be
The best of women one can be
I am a woman and a woman I will be.
Every word you said, I heard.
Every movement you made, I read.
I felt you not value me as the woman I should be
You made my current problems define who I am
You saw nothing but assets belonging to me.
I tell you I am a woman and a woman I will be.
To cook, to clean,
To be dressed up and made up
Each one of these I have yet to perfect
The treasure many seek
Are the morals instilled within me.
Trust me when I say, I am a woman and a woman I will be.
Truth be spoken
I am glad we have met
I have been taught to mind my own
And to do my very best
To remember my God and stay strong in my faith.
Don’t forget when I say, I am a woman and a woman I will be.
In my own timing I will bloom
Go on ahead and be her groom.
Problems today I may have
But tomorrow blessings to mine I will be
I believe when I say I am a woman and a woman I will be.
