The Universal Woman!

The Universal Woman

by Frieda Groffy

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 tenderness
the source of compassion
the balance of the world
the universal woman
with the rainbow colored skin
am I

    Thanks for your kind words!

    It’s a pleasure to know that you approve of the painting however I’m just sorry that the artist’s name is unknown. You’ve really made my day.
