A Woman’s Strength

June 23, 2015 | By

A powerful poetic dedication to the unwavering spirit, the grit, determination and true power of womanhood.

"The deeper you bury me in the ground, the finer I will blossom out"

“The deeper you bury me in the ground, the finer I will blossom out”

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.
