Yes. A Woman.

I am a woman of air and water.

Propelled by hidden forces,

Recklessly optimistic.

 

I am a woman who watches

The steady ebb and flow of the tide,

Feels the world turn

 

I am a woman who counts.

Who understands facts and figures,

And is…counting.

 

I am the kind of woman,

Who wears red lipstick! I warn you,

I can be trouble.

 

I am a woman who keeps

An emery board in a beside drawer

I’m dangerous

 

I’m a woman who understands

The consequences of kisses, yet still

Ignores them

 

I am a woman who laughs

Whilst rising high as a kite

In Life’s Jetstream

 

I am a woman on a mission

To fight for Respect. Justice and Equality

For every woman

So tonight, its party time

A chance to flirt and dance

Cast off the old, begin the new

Salutations to Love and Romance

 

Welcome to QUEEROPOLIS
