The Universal Woman

poetry from ' The Universal Woman' to be released in February 2006 by Cyberwit Press in India.
THE UNIVERSAL WOMAN
I'm the universal woman
with the rainbow colored skin
I bear the pain of all
small little girls
gang raped in the wars
the violated, beaten up women
dying and not knowing why
I'm the fierce, tortured freedom fighter
of all the revolutions
long forgotten and honor denied
I'm the universal woman
humiliated for my color and tongue
persecuted for my beliefs
for my true love for a woman
circumcised in my sexuality
killed in my womanhood
I'm the universal woman
with the rainbow colored skin
mother of the earth
queen of all life
mistress of the moon
the warmth and passion of the sun
the tree of thenderness
the source of compassion
the balance of the world
the universal woman
with the rainbow colored skin
am I
Frieda Groffy (c)2005
