Belle de Jour

She slips into her high heels
Pairs them with a dress.
She sports this look at work

She steps onto the street
And walk gracefully, rhythmically,
Her hips gently swaying
To their own beat, their tempo.

She takes the light rail
And maintains a calm disposition
Even if everyone else
Pushes her way in.

She finishes her tasks,
Never turns them in half-baked.
She takes pride in her job,
Never coy, always with her chin up.

She is strong and smart,
Focused, a goal setter.
She may be nursing a broken heart,
But she stands tall; she is fearless.

  1. she is you,
    she is your hope,
    she is your dream,
    she is your poem...
