Yes I am a woman.

I am proud.
Proud to be me.
YES I am a woman.
Proud to be a woman.
But nothing makes me feel less
validated than the next
than when someone points it out.
YES I AM A WOMAN!
And YES I am proud.
But why must we talk about this
in every single crowd?
Yes I am a woman.
I stand up on a stage.
I say the things I’m feeling,
even when I don’t feel brave.
YES I AM A WOMAN!
we already went over that!!!
It’s almost like you keep bringing it up
to prove that it’s a fact?
Yes I AM a woman!
and I have a lot to say…
“What is it like to be a woman in a band?”
How do I even answer that?
“Being a woman in a band is just like being a man in a band except you have to explain that you’re a woman in a band every single day.”
There’s my answer.
To your silly question.
I told you I had a lot to say.
So let me say this…
I am proud.
Proud to be me.
Me I am woman.
It’s more than you’ll ever be.
