I Am More

I am more than the punchline to a bad joke
More than my baby making parts
More than a body
More than an incubator
More than a purity ring
I am more than a slut, a saint, or a prude
And I am more than a decoration
I am more
You cannot tell me who I am
Because I already know
I am a woman
I am strong and complex
I am not perfect
I make mistakes…often
But you do not define me
It is not your job to fix me
When you push me down
I will only rise, stronger
Shame and I are no longer lovers
No longer keeping company in the night
I am more than the guilt you put on me
I am more
And I am not ashamed
To be a woman
This is my strength
This is my power
I am more
