Definition of being feminine

 


March 4, 2006
iranian.com


Being feminine does not mean

Staying barefoot and pregnant

Or totally being under the thumb

Of the man you married

Being feminine is being

What you feel

Inside and out

It means having your love

And being loved

It means being fancy and delicate

Or being a grease monkey

It means being career-driven

Or home bound raising your children

There are so many things

Being feminine means

Just be true to you

Be what you can do

No matter what

You are always woman
