Dear Woman.... one of my favourite poems.


Dear Woman,

Sometimes

You’ll just be too much woman.

Too smart,

Too beautiful,

Too strong.

Too much of something

That makes a man feel like less of a man,

Which will make you feel like you have to be less of a woman.

The biggest mistake you can make

Is removing jewels from your crown

To make it easier for a man to carry.

When this happens, I need you to understand

You do not need a smaller crown—

You need a man with bigger hands.

~
