What Women Want ?!


In this poem I don’t claim to speak for ALL women, of course, I speak only from my own experience and perspective, and I use the word “women” not as a totality and generalization but as what is permissible by “poetic license”

Women want to be women

Confident with her femininity,  not a man-like being

Women want to dress like a woman, elegant, modest and serene

without being chastised or feeling devalued

Women want to be loving, caring and compassionate

Men around her are a father, a brother, a son, or a friend

Her companion is her love, not her “enemy”

Women want to complement man, not compete with him

Women want  cohesiveness not conflict

Women want to create Life, care for Life,

Protect Life, cherish Life

Not destroy it

Women want to gaze at her newborn

with fondness and endless appreciation

Whisper to her soulmate:

this precious is made from us, for us, our very own miracle

Women want to hold her baby with adoration and devotion

Fill her CV with pride

Job: Mother

Not “Housewife” or “Unemployed”

Women want to play

Adorn the ambiance with joy and laughter

Twirl, glide, sway and dance

with her son or her daughter

Women want to be soft and tender like a petal of a rose

Ocean breeze on a hot summer day

Women want to feed the poor, offer bread to the hungry

Kiss the eyes, caress the tearful face of a little girl

0000000 oldies 21

Women want to invade hearts not countries

Embroider of the sweetness of her soul

Mercy and kindness, a warm shawl

Wrap the weak, lonely, lost and vulnerable

Women want to plant love all around

Meadows of wild flowers,  scent of paradise

Women want to spread her soul wings, fly up to heaven

For her beloved, flung its gates wide open

Sprinkle the steep way up with daisies, lilies, lilac and jasmine

Women want to open her arms wide and embrace the world

Women Want Wonders

Women Work Wonders

If only you could see

Inspired by:

The Death of Feminism  

Feminists lost their case when:

* They tried to improve women conditions and rights by mimicking men in appearance and behavior, instead of rejoicing in their femininity and cherishing it ( in doing so they subliminally were giving the message that in order to be as “good as men” you have to appear,work, joke and behave like a man, i.e being fully a woman is never good enough)

* furthermore, they waged a war of revenge on men, and distorted the natural loving relationship into one of conflict, jealousy and aggression, instead of understanding that the relationship with men is complementary reciprocal and harmonious, rather than one of friction and conflict

  2. Asalum alaykum 🙂 yesterday you posted a poem in a group called The Truth–Muslims Christians and Jews together for Palestine. I actually thought the poem was beautiful, and something I would have put on my own wall. But, I took it down because I read “what women want” and wasn’t sure what kind of conversation it would start…or if men would start posting things like “what men want”. However, it’s not my group and I was only helping to monitor it. I talked to Sophia last night, and when I told her what happened, she told me who you were. I didn’t know, and I am so very sorry 😦 can you please please repost it? And please please accept my most humble apology. I am deeply and truly sorry ❤

  3. A woman wants to be what she is..a WOMAN. The world is a barren desert without them…to his last breath the Greatest Prophet commanded they should be treated decently.
