The song says,
I am woman hear me roar
The voices say, I am woman let me soar
across the nation
Hope and tears of anticipation
To the great skies that
were meant to be
A life of freedom and reality, a life of choices
with many voices.
Who speaks for me, with and to me
Who chooses what
is right for me and mine
To faith and prosperity
Only God controls my
My body, my mind and soul depends
My choices, my voices that speak
Whether right or wrong I will remain strong
Fighting for what I
The right to bare voice of
Freedom for Pro-Choice.
Morrison: A voice that reaches out is heard. This poem shows how proud I am to
be a Black Woman, strong and free to make choices in my life.
