"A woman's choice is her proclamation, no need for further elaboration." © Shoshan
The essence of being a woman lies not only in the ability to bring life into this world but in the unyielding power to make decisions about that very life. A woman's choice isn't a plea for validation or a request seeking approval. It's a staunch, autonomous declaration. We shouldn't have to justify ourselves or seek the acceptance of others to make our own choices. We shouldn't be held to the scrutiny of a society that constantly demands explanations. We are the masters of our fate, the captains of our will, and any attempt to undermine us is but an illusion of control. Remember this, woman: Your voice, your choice, your life. You owe no explanations to anyone.
In the echo of the shadow I cast,
a voice rises, steadfast and vast.
Why the urge to question my way,
when within me lies my own ballet?
Each step I take, each choice I make,
are pieces of me, not just for show's sake.
I seek not your nod, nor your gaze,
just respect for my self-treading maze.
I'm more than the words you hear from my lips,
beyond the decisions, the momentary blips.
In every laugh, tear, in every deed,
there's a universe of thought and creed.
I owe no answers for the path I choose,
nor for the love I feel or the grudges I use.
I am my own canvas, my tale, my song,
a woman in full bloom, no need to explain my wrong.
The quote in this image is for all the women who've chosen to speak up, and for all the men who need to learn to stop demanding explanations: "A woman's choice is her proclamation, no need for further elaboration." © Shoshan
