for a romantic novel..

This is a woman’s world

Go for it Flo. Took me time to work out what you were on about, but by the end, I\'d caught up. Good satire. Keep working on this topic sometimes (not every time, people will switch off).

This is a woman’s world
L. B. Mek said:

speak your Truth, but don\'t expect kindness
from this cruel world
be brave, insure you\'ve measured the weight of your words
before you share them with world and then, just let them be
when you feel you have to explain yourself
to prevent, deter hate or abuse
that feeling is a form of toxicity, shed it
never repress it
it will hinder your painstakingly built
sense of independence..
(forgive my rant, I meant well
I like your insightful take
on modernity\'s warped concept of empowerment
where it works, only if you sign-up to the whole package
or else you\'re deemed unworthy of its haphazard benefits)
your work reminded me
of this lyrics from Neneh Cherry\'s song \'Woman\':
\'You gotta be fortunate, you gotta be lucky now
I was just sitting here thinkin\' good and bad
But I\'m the kind of woman that was built to last
They tried erasing me, they couldn\'t wipe out my past
To save my child, I\'d rather go hungry
I\'ve got all of Ethiopia inside of me
And my blood flows through every man
In this Godless land, that delivered me
I\'ve cried so many tears even the blind can see

This is a woman\'s world, this is my world
This is a woman\'s world, for this man\'s girl
There ain\'t a woman in this world, not a woman or a girl
That can\'t deliver love, in a man\'s world\'

The dance of time
L. B. Mek said:

what a bravely transparent depiction
of deeply sensitive and personal musings..
sometimes we all feel stranded, from a future
we can\'t picture
as our past consumes our now, so overwhelmingly!
really like your accessible wording
thanks for sharing

L. B. Mek said:

more power to you!
fortitude is a dying trait, in our chaotic modernity
stay strong, share and reach out
hopefully, you\'ll find the response you\'ve been looking for
but remember
there is no rule saying we Have, to Be a certain way
just have to try and make the best, of our flitting life
how we do that, is completely up to us!
thanks for choosing to share
