International Women’s Day 2021

To celebrate all things female, I would like to share the lyrics to a song a wrote for this day ten years ago…

Woman by Melinda J Wells © 2011

Woman is only the word that I use, an acceptable title the world can’t refuse

Girl is the name that I use to describe, spirit that endlessly lives on inside

Mother is something that I chose to be, my babies the most precious part of me

They nourish and fill to the depths of my soul, yes they are mine but I hold no control

I am more, I am more, I am more, but you can call me woman

I may be lover or I may be wife, I may be alone for the rest of my life

Walk in the footsteps of those who have gone, rebel from the masses, sing my own song

My feminine nature is gentle and sweet, brings me to battle or calls for retreat

I am tender of heart with a powerful force, intending for destiny to run its course

I am more, I am more, I am more, I am more

I am more, I am more, I am more, but you can call me woman

I am connected and I feel the power of love,

I am connected to all things below and above,

I am more, so much more, I am more

Deep beneath roles and the games that I play, runs a river of life that’s not on display

I feel connected to all that I see, because I can choose then I choose to be free

I love who I am and this body of mine, with its imperfections, the ravage of time

I love the shadows that linger in fear, the message of love whispered inside my ear

I am more, I am more, I am more, I am more

I am more, I am more, I am more, but you can call me woman
