' A Poem For All Men and Women! '


Woman,
Demean not your body
Given to you
For a divine purpose!

Woman,
You're not mere body, though!

A soul's passage
To an earthly sojourn
Is no spitoon!

The hips
That hold life secure
The breasts
That nourish growth
The body
That bears the world
Can never be a play-field
For the undeserving
For those who look upon it
As a booty to loot!

It's not for measly men
Who price it at their whim!

Woman,
Ridden with pain
Your body is a celebration too
Woman,
Your body is a unique creation
To house creation!

    I like this poem for its spiritualization of the body, so often under the brunt of objectification. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
