We The Women

She of the sad eyes 
of the scarred body. 
She of the abused heart
and bruised ego. 
She of the thankless job
of the silent tears 
streaking a dusty face.

She also of the fierce roar,
of the strong womb,
of the pain of childbirth
and the joy too. 
She of the mighty mountains, 
with the depth of a thousand seas. 
She of the wild forests, 
of the forest fires too.
She of the fallen, 
She the phoenix too. 
She of the kicked
a thousand times,
She of the defiance too. 
She, a woman defeated 
a thousand times- 
She of the undefeated, 
a thousand and one times.
