Daily Prompt: Can’t Drive 55
Take the third line of the last song you heard, make it your post title, and write for a maximum of 15 minutes. GO!
The last song that I heard was “Bones” by Ginny Blackmore and the third line is “It sucks being a woman.” I cant think of a more horrible line in a song to isolate. The truth is that it doesn’t suck being a woman, in fact just the opposite. There are times that I feel a bit at a disadvantage but all in all it basically rules.
I am in love with the fact that I have a vagina, a womb (or at least had one…) and breasts. I can grew a whole other human being in my body. I am a woman that has the ability to let a person of my choosing enter my body.
I can wear a dress, skirt, jeans or a pants suit and no one bats an eye. I have come from a lineage of female warriors that have handed down the ferocity of a lioness and the gentility of a butterfly. I have many archetypes, all with purpose and meaning. I can wake up and choose which part of my goddess will emerge.
I have wide hips and fleshy breasts, I have round arms and robust thighs. I am told that I should look like other women, the ones on the TV and in Newspapers, but that is just THE MAN (not woman) trying to take my power. My goddess knows these feeble attempts at control, and everything about me screams in defiance and revels in my womanhood.
I am a wild woman, a wise woman, a gentle woman, a warrior woman, an intelligent woman, a naive woman, a romantic woman, a pissed off woman, an unfair woman.
What kind of woman are you?????
