Is there a list of qualifications?
Is it my ability to bare children?
Is it my integrity, my class, my respectable manner?
Am I uniquely beautiful as many women are from birth or is it my butterfly center. If I am too be woman is it due to my beautiful smile, my hair kinky curly straight or its wave. Could it be my skin bright caramel black berry chocolate milk or white. If I am a woman am I mere a descendant of eve. Does the roundness of my breast or the sweet nectar of my kiss suggest that I am woman.
Does the soft caress of my hand or the sultry voice indicate my sex.
If I am to be called woman what does this constitute. Am I a woman merely because I am female. Does the way that I dress speak and handle my business say that I am a woman. Am I to be called a woman if I am educated and speak with a calm tongue, in confidence.
Is a woman a woman, simply because she proclaims to be. Are their some qualities we must possess to show the true nature of a woman.
The Webster’s Dictionary says that the woman is just an adult female person. While the Webster’s Thesaurus corresponds woman as being lady or female.
I know many women, and they have many qualities and none of those qualities suggest that they are women by simply being female. We are woman by the way in which we stand, for what we believe in. Our motherly instincts, our strive for the success of our own and family. Our classy dress, the arch of our brows, and swell of our lips. We are women, standing along side our men. Building our family foundation, nurturing our children.
We are women by our emotional bouts, our sensitive moments,
Our stern and disciplined tongue.
If I am to be called a Woman, I am too be one that has an invincible spirit, a fighter, a lover, and a child of God.
