I am feeling more and more worthless as a man at the moment. It started with a sexist bigot being voted into the white house and concludes nicely with this! So thank you, lol :(
Unfortunately, a truer poem was never written. Well done and may I just say, I for one truly do appreciate the value of womanhood! (My daughter would kill me if I didn't)
Ben, please do not feel worthless. Not all men are sexist a-holes...My husband for one is a very empathic man towards woman. My ex, um, not so much...and he has 2 daughters! We don't have to be treated like princesses but we also don't need to be thought of as second class citizens. Your job as a father is to teach your son's how to be a good men and your daughter to be a strong self sufficient woman. Hugs Ben-
I like this poem to the very inch of it!! Its one of those hard
hitting, truth filled poem about how women are perceived,
used, taken for granted and humiliated. What more this poem
includes every woman as the title suggest from every walk of
life, culture, religion; because in every culture women are been treated and used without mercy or care.
The read itself is smoothly penned without missing a beat nor
is there a hiccup or an intrusion of the flow which makes the reader want to read each and every line till the end and
nodding one’s head in agreement. Overall, a painful read yet powerful. Excellent!
This is really amazing. It evokes that feeling that, I would think, every woman has at some point in life. For us there is no winning. You're always too much of one thing and not enough of another. Or if you show some exceptional skill, it's automatically decided that you are some sort of exception to your gender.
