I Am the Woman – Ja’Net Conde

I am the woman your mother
warned you about.
I am the woman who
unapologetically speaks her truth
with unequivocal transparency
and brutal honesty.
I will disagree with you.
I will fight you until I have won.
Even if my face is covered in blood
and bruised and swollen.
I am the woman that will
walk away from you the moment
you’ve proven to be untrustworthy.
That will remove you from every part of my life.
As if you never existed.
I am the woman that will cry and scream and
destroy herself for hurting those I have brought hurt to.
I am the woman that will never give up,
no matter how exhausted my bones and mind are.
I will keep going.
Quietly fighting battles no one knows about.
I am the woman that secretly
began to love herself more
than anyone or anything
to ever exist.

Hi, I’m Ja’Net Conde, Owner and Administer at Random and Ridiculous Ramblings by Ja’Net Conde. I have been writing since I was a small child and I’ve never really stopped. I love writing poetry and prose that inspire people to be the best version of themselves. A lot of my writing is based on the traumas that I’ve experienced throughout my life and how I came out as the victor or survivor. Please visit me at Random and Ridiculous Ramblings by Ja’Net Conde and take a peek at some of my work. Thank you!
