I'm Just A Woman

Oh sir, I’m just a woman
How could I understand
For you are set above me
So tall and proud and grand

Oh sir, I’m just a woman
Beneath you, I am told,
Can never be your equal
How could I be so bold

Oh sir, I’m just a woman
I’ll be subservient
Walk within your shadow
I ought to be content

Oh sir, I'm just a woman
My only real true worth
To bear you many children
Perpetuate new birth

Oh sir, I’m just a woman
I know its somewhat trite
But somewhere deep inside me
I feel it can’t be right

Oh sir, I’m just a woman
When will you ever see
That I am stood above you
You should look up to me

Oh sir, I’m just a woman
And quite as good as you
And so if you don’t like it
You know what you can do ….!

    .....somehow I think two people who love each other
    would never say I am above you...they would both
    be equals and best of friends....love the humor in this write

    GREAT! ! Val, did you write this or did Margaret Thacher? Just saw the film on her life, she Was as strong as the woman who wrote this poem. It was just greeat. Especially the last line You know what you can do Absolutely shocking to men's petty egos

    This is why I am married to my ship. Never a question who is in charge......Cur
    Don't worry Val, Captain knows I am in charge,
    just to proud to admit it.

    great poem dear Valerie.i think its not for the fun.that s a truth.women deserve to stand even higher than men.they can be like ISIS.
    the world dont forget those great women like Marie Curie or...
    maybe its not accepted in some old traditional culturs or religions but i think God has created all people equally.
    this poem is a contrast of silhouette dismay in chauvinist societies.~nb

    Depending on which part of the world we may live this poem has much truth and value, male chauvinism once in fashion, now I see on the decline, at least where I live. Well written and the point well taken, even if it was for fun.....
