And God made me Woman

Gioconda Belli

 

And God made me woman,
with the long hair,
the eyes,
the nose and the mouth of a woman.

With curves
and folds
and soft hollows...

God dug into me,
made a workshop in me for human beings,
delicately wove my nerves,
and carefully balanced
the number of my hormones,
composed my blood
and injected me with it
so that it would irrigate
my entire body.

And so ideas were born,
dreams,
instict,
everything God gently created
with hammering whispers
and the drilling motions of love,
the thousand and one things that make me a woman every day,
that make me proud every morning
when I arise
and bless my sex.
