Like A Zebra
This poem came to me when I was thinking about the issues women have with their bodies. How unhappy and insecured they feel about themselves especially when they become mothers! Those changes that come after having children.
Well, these are my thoughts…
I have lines like a zebra
Beautiful lines that tells a story
A beautiful story I’m proud to share
Proud to share my achievement
An achievement that comes with pains
Pains that I pray to experience
An experience that begins with an action
An action that ends with passion
A passion that is so strong
So strong that it gives a seed
A seed that germinates into life
A life that grows in 9 months
9 months of development and changes
Beautiful changes on my body
Beautiful lines like that of a zebra
Lines I’m not ashamed of
Because of my achievement
An achievement of bringing another life
Another life that has an opportunity
An opportunity to tell a story
A beautiful story all over again
Like a zebra
I have earned my lines
I am not afraid
I am not ashamed
I am a woman
I am a mother
I am beautiful
Like a zebra
Please share if you are beautiful and proud to be a woman or mother.
