Women's Day Poems
"A symbol of modesty and mercy
Healing for the whole of humanity
Gentle her touch, so her words
Bless the women for her powers
Women, the truth and the love
Showers on children and her love
Looking nothing, seeking no rewards
Only piety flowing through her glance"
"I wonder if there was a women
A women who i could really care for
A women that would be down to ride
If there was a women like this she'll be my night sky
My stars, my sun, and my moon
She'll be my everlasting love my
She'll be 'A Women'
We'll be as close as we could
Holding each other thinking about the decisions we'll make
Thinking about our future
Looking each other in the eyes
Knowing our LOVE is true
"I'm never my own woman
too many reasons
not to be
so I hibernate
in every season
until life decides
to give me
to express myself.
I am one woman
