What Makes Me

Am I a woman if I care for you?
If I cater to your every need and bow down to you–worshiping you.
If I instead chose to align you into the proper position of power does that make me a woman?
If I stand up for myself and know how to refrain from your control does that make me a woman?

Am I a woman if I join together with you?
If I allow you to become one with me and unite through your name.
If I instead chose to keep my family name because you would not ever take mine, does that make me a woman?
If I chose to say no to something you would not give in to and do, does that make me a woman?

Am I a woman if I stick up for myself?
If I call you out when you are wrong and allow myself the chance to speak up.
If I chose to take the spotlight and speak for what I believe, does that make me a woman?
If I voice my opinion over yours without backing down to your strong will, does that make me a woman?
