A Woman

Whose gentleness can calm
Even the fiercest of storms
And the most restless of souls.

Whose intellect can outwit
Even the most cunning of creatures
Who take advantage of her.

Whose strength can carry
A baby in her womb
And the world's weight on her shoulders.

Whose hands sew and mend
A child's dress, broken hearts,
And family ties taken for granted.

Whose resilience enables her
To stand tall and be proud
Of what she has gone through.

Whose brilliance inspires others
To seek their own brilliance
And start an empowering flame.
