Woman by Nikki Giovanni

Post Series: Poetry Thursday


Poem by Nikki Giovanni


she wanted to be a blade

of grass amid the fields

but he wouldn’t agree

to be the dandelion


she wanted to be a robin singing

through the leaves

but he refused to be

her tree


she spun herself into a web

and       looking for a place to rest

turned to him

but he stood straight

declining to be her corner


she tried to be a book

but he wouldn’t read


she turned herself into a bulb

but he wouldn’t let her grow


she decided to become

a woman

and though he still refused

to be a man

she decided it was all
