An empowering free verse poem
"Silent Woman" by Alli Johnston
I am not a silent woman
Wallowing in oppression
Stifled, caged, zoetic
Tyrannical mantle assumed

I am not a silent woman
Submissive to a son
Aching, longing of freedom
From society's eldest snare

I am not a silent woman
Emotionally accused
Temperamentally tried
Found guilty of being a girl

I am not a silent woman
Marvelously standing
Adamantine warrior
I will not be contained

Author Notes
Dealing with a great deal of sexism in the equine industry has inspired me to write this. It was quick, free verse, mainly for myself.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
