    I am a woman standing erect.
    I do not wear my sexuality like a dirty rag
    to be tossed thoughtlessly at the feet of men.
    I hold it with dignity as a jeweled crown.

    I wade through sorrow.
    My feet are muddied.
    My face is clean and
    I am not ashamed to look toward heaven.

    The strength of my voice does not frighten me.
    Poetry resonates like crisp water from my breast.
    I find space in the world for my own song,
    I'm not afraid to join the symphony of other voices.

    I am learning my face.
    It is the face of a woman,
    Imago dei.
    I can accept the mystery.

    I'm learning the face of the other,
    and I am not afraid.
    I am a woman who is seen.
    I am not hidden.
