A Woman’s Strength
A powerful poetic dedication to the unwavering spirit, the grit, determination and true power of womanhood.
The more you try to let me down,
the more I will rise
and come out like the curls of smoke
from the closed burning pan
and go up beyond your grasp.
The deeper you bury me
in the ground,
the finer I will blossom out
and become a source of your envy.
So don’t you dare touch me
with lust and wickedness.
Give me love and I will requite
with an ocean of love
and a sky of trust to dwell beneath.
