Poet’s Corner: ‘I am a Feminist’


As seen in Pegasus Pages (Summer 2014)

‘Tofe Ayeni returns to the Poet’s Corner with another powerful poem to compel you. Send in your poetry to: contact@pegasuspages.com

I am a feminist.

Sometimes, I feel I am just sexist.

But the world makes me angry,

The fact that people cannot seem to see.


They say that we are seeking attention,

That we lack motivation,

That we want to be handed things,

So as not to hurt our girly feelings.


They are wrong.

We just refuse to play along,

We refuse to be a part of that masculine game,

We refuse to live a life without aim.


I will not be inferior,

I cannot be inferior,

So I therefore become the worst thing a woman can possibly be:

I am a feminist.


But I am happy.
