I am a woman who makes mistake, who is alone in bed at night and cries until the birds of dawn pick away the debris of darkness.
I am a woman who cries on a Friday morning held taut by the things I never said and could have done until the scavenger of day beats away the whining demons of my emptiness.
I am a woman who often becomes bored with life and finds it very difficult to get up for work in the mornings during weekdays.
I am a woman who, more often than not, have a bad hair day, who looks in the mirror and keeps wondering why I couldn’t drag myself in a salon.
I am a woman who smiles to cover up my pains and who lies about always being fine when my heart is bleeding with loneliness.
I am a woman who sometimes just get things wrong.
I am a woman who is, at times, in the wrong direction, like looking for strawberries in a cornfield.
I am a woman who just can’t, at times, gives myself the permission to shed tears and bless myself with the gift of healing.
On the other hand, I am a woman who loves too hard, deep and fast.
I am a woman who loves dogs, who loves the scent of the earth after the rain, who loves the reds and oranges of sunset and sunrise, who loves a hamburger dinner in an Angus Restaurant and Nizar Qabbani.
I am a loving woman and I can be loved just the way I am.
I am a sort of a woman who knows how to lace up high boots, who still sends letters to home. Who gazes at the world with a face that is torn with compassion.
I am an intense woman who is passionate about coherent words. Who loves Scarlett O’Hara’s Gone With The Wind, Dyan Sheldon’s Victim Of Love and Judith McNaught’s novels.
I am a woman who loves Ben Affleck because he has a name like my Dad that sounds like freshly laundered sheets flapping on the air.
I am a woman who will stick to my words. That everything I do, I do it with love. A woman who finds solace in every friendship. Who arranges stars, planets, and asteroids for the convenience of the people I love. Who cherishes, longs and holds onto people I care for.
I am a woman who still believes in justice and equality.
I am a woman with a million of memories, who knows what it is like to experience more life, more love and make new memories. Whether it happened just a few weeks or 20 years ago, I would always remember that whatever lies ahead of me, I know, I would open my heart and follow where it leads me. But, in the meantime, I will live a life. Just live. To live a beautiful life.
Yes, I am a woman. I am just only a human being.
