Woman

She is woman
a sensual and gentle being
filled with passion and rage
emotions spilling over
onto the mantel that is her life

she is woman
tender and nurturing
mad and cynical
planting kisses on those that she loves
feeling compassion for those that have hurt her

she is woman
scrutinized for what she isn't
flawless yet blind to her perfection
never quite measuring up
but always setting the bar higher than before

she is woman
an embodiment of strength
dripping in all of her glory
enveloped in grace
fearless in all of her pursuits

she is woman
a beacon of light in any room
stellar in every which way
a wonder of the world
even when she is rubble
she is still woman
a masterpiece
