Another version of a woman

Shadows in my time erupted

when I was captured

and I was loved

respected

admired

I tried to regain myself

but the sweetness of the moment

Just let me be there

I thought that

I was invading

a sacred place just for males

-and I laughed inside-

But, again I just closed my eyes

and I showed my appreciation

eating their food

listening to their soft talk

being cared for them

Yes...

I was myself

with all these Aphrodite sisters

whose only passion in life

is to care…

I couldn’t contradict them

Or talk about

liberation

Politics

Free trade

Global warming

I was in another world where

women, mothers, sisters

took my battle away

and

I just sat

waiting for the moment

to run

and whisper to the wind

that I’m another version of a woman!
