I hate men who are afraid of women’s strength
― Anaïs Nin
Welcome to this week’s Poetry 1o1 Rehab Prompt. The first of 2016.
My prompt this week is FEM.
I have tried, and, perhaps in doing so, skated on thin ice, to write from a perspective different than my own. I may, or may not, have achieved that. No doubt, I will find out soon enough.
So, this week, write a poem to describe what it means to be feminine, in your world, or in some other (part of the) world; or, take a different spin from the post and write about something from the perspective of another person, or, if the fancy takes you, something not even human.
And in doing so. Show no mercy.
I have two legs, two arms,
A brain (with two sides),
just like you.
I want, and need,
like you, more than,
I can do, all you can,
(than you can)
