make a man out of me,
a man who makes amends.
a manly man, who is masculine
but may cry in front of their friends.
wake the woman within me,
wild and wistful, well-built.
a woman of wisdom and good will
who refuses to breath in Eve’s guilt.
no man is void of all weeping,
no woman has no ounce of strength.
so stand and be naked to those
who will stamp you for all of life’s length.
