Woman

Her beauty represents us well
Her intellect does us proud
Soft as a feather; yet strong as steel
She lives her life out loud
Her bright future is our bright future
Her failures aren’t hers alone
When she feels pain we feel the same
After all she's one of our own
She possesses a lifelong membership
In the mightiest club in the world
Power was placed in the palm of her hand
The day she was born a girl
Her eyes sparkle with the light of life and love
Her hips sway to a rhythm only they can hear
She gives birth to beauty in the form of man and art
She soldiers through madness
In the face of exquisite fear
Cocoa brown or seafoam green
honey gold or baby blue
Her eyes capture life's best photographs
Images sublime; no matter the hue
Her bosom is a source of sustenance
Her mouth the source of comforting words
Her arms cradle slumbering babies and children
Her voice calms raging seas with authority unheard
This creature is a woman
A feeling, faltering sensual soul
She rules to the right of her mighty king
The softer half of their sovereign whole
She is a woman
Bendable but unbreakable
benevolent giver of life
Loyal friend and confidant
Loving mother and wife
She is a woman
No shrinking violent
Radiantly colorful yet beautifully plain
The most fragrant flower in the garden of life
A rose by any other name...

Woman
