I should have been born a man
‘Y’ paired with an ‘x’
But now here I am

Brute strength that comes with those arms
No due woes to fear
The might and command

Lofty thoughts could go higher
Mountains dare to climb
Small cliffs, less danger


But God made me a woman
Womb to match a heart
Rib taken from man

Tenderness makes me real strong
An irony of sorts
Soft can bid no wrong

Submission leads on deeper
Hard may be the place
I wiser, braver
