Poems selected from my book in honor of Women’ s History Month

Standard

 

The essence of a woman

The essence of a woman is to nurture her soul

To cleanse her mind to become the independent

Woman that she can be.

To take the necessary steps that need be

To accomplish any and everything that comes her way

Let no barriers become unbreakable because there is

Always a way to make end to end meet.

Listen when I say

I know what it’s like to make it to a better day.

When I look in the mirror and see what I see

I am beautiful

Strong and independently unique.

So the next woman who seems to have her head down

Look up I tell you and see what I see

And tell yourself every single day simply

I love being me

Ever so faithfully and watch yourself rise

From out of that empty shell that used to be.
