A Woman In Today's World



A woman in today's world
must have beliefs, some backbone
prepare for the struggle
the day she might be left alone

A woman in today's world
must see beyond the beauty of a sunset
have a praying pride, a plan "B"
when her universal needs go unmet

A woman in today's world
must be strong to survive
make the very best decisions
fight like hell to stay alive

A woman in today's world
has a heap of responsibility
working hard, holding on
bearing love and humility.

A woman in today's world
must be her effeminate self, be free
tread the path of her ancestors
recall the pain of their history.

A woman in today's world
must be ever ready and strong 
a remarkably leading spirit
in times of storm

A woman in today's world
must make the ultimate sacrifice
bring hope to the masses
usher in new life
