AIN'T I STILL A WOMAN

By Dorothy Williams, Army

Writing Type: Poem

Been lied on, spied on, pried on, and cried on
but ain't I still a woman, I will survive
abused, confused, misused, and misconstrued
but I's still a woman, I shall survive
whacked, sacked, shacked and I been lacked
I was born woman and I can survive
a crook, took, shooked, looked and booked
I' s just a woman, and I must survive
dead, begged, misled, bled, and misread
can't you see I's a woman, I will survive
alone, no phone, no song and far from home
blessed, confessed, possessed and refreshed
ill, without will, filled, pilled and still
I's came here a woman and I's goin' to survive
kicked, licked and sick, been hit and fixed
Lord God, I's a woman and I'll survive
broked, choked, poked and hoaxed
this here is a woman and I shall survive
around, upside down, on the ground and found
raped, shaped, faked, waked and taped
mean, lean and clean, just had to be seen
been a soldier, bolder and colder
cause I still a woman, I survive
bad, sad, without dad, glad and had
true, and blue, through a few and I been you
this here girl is a fine woman because I did survive.
Amen, Amen, and Amen.
