Just a woman
I wish I could be the sun, to shine over
planets of miracles and understanding.
I wish I was the ocean, to bridge over
difficulties, to make sadness turn into a foam.
To be a wave crashing the brown of the rocks,
leaving no sign from the salt in the water.
To be a storm, destroying everything,
keeping me apart from dreams and beauty.
I want to feel like a flower in the forest,
like a puff of freedom brought by the wind,
like rain kissing the grass in a boundless land.
But after all, I remain just a woman …
