WHO I AM

I am invisible
The hue of my skin is what you see
The size of my body is what is viewed
No matter how softly or loudly I speak I am not heard
Often underestimated and taken for granted and expected to accept this
Constantly expected to be the "good girl" and never make waves
The cheerleader but rarely cheered
The listener, the comforter, the nurturer
This is how I am seen
Yet unseen

I am vibrant and funny
I cry at commercials and sappy songs
I defend my family and friends like a lioness protects her cubs
I am intelligent and a visionary
I love with every fiber of my being
I am Proverbs 31 Woman
I am phenomenal
THIS IS WHO I AM
