I am a Woman

I am a woman who is holding her own
I am a woman who is not lonely, but alone
I am the snow, I am the sand

I am angry through and through
I am crying by and by
Making amends with lover's quarrels
I am giving my own life

Take me out of this empty space
Leave me naked against a wall
I will bleed, but will not be bled
Not until they claim me dead

There is life yonder and all around
There is death beneath the ground
I am shaken, but not shook up
I am taken, but not taken away

I am a woman. I am strong
I am a woman. I am weak
Part of woman, part of man
I am God, I am God
