she’s female, a woman
a wife, a sister, a lover
a sweetheart, a mistress
a girlfriend, a teacher

a politician, a doctor
an actress, a driver
a writer, a blogger
a criminal, a prostitute

a nun, a servant
a musician, a singer
a chef, a banker
a grandma, a mother

whoever she is,
she’s independent in her judgment or action
she has always been her own woman
capable of bearing offspring
our lives began with her and her man

she’s called a WOMAN by designation preferred by most modern female adults, the standard parallel to man
and a LADY as the term of approval and the term of courtesy in the sense of a “polite, refined woman”

A vital part of your identity…

if i’ll braid your tongue
could you speak a little bit formal
a little bit nicer
if i’ll clip it with a hairpin
could your pitch be a little bit low
a little bit sweet
if i’ll sew it with a thread and needle
could you talk to me like a priest
delivering his sermon
and not a sergeant
giving commands to his soldiers
can’t we have a discourse without
the subject of philosophy and you acting like a lawyer
can’t we talk in simple manner
without reciting a declamation like my mother
can’t we exchange views
without giving a lecture like my father
can’t we talk seriously and honestly
without acting a spiel like my brother or sister
can’t we plainly talk like a true friend

the way you talk can point the kind of circles you have
the job that you have
and how you see the world
it’s your window into who you are
which can be a vital part of your identity…
