Knotty Nature

Knotty nature
The female of the species is fate, no debate,
Denied the light they knew she would make it bright,
Weakened in her mind but strength always by her side
the woman is on the rise,

Strength over fear in her eyes,
Money on her mind, rotten places to find,
Truth and lies never bind, yet she Chooses to fly blind,
Deceivers are always behind, her gift is that she is wise,
And her God is in sight.

She beautifully awakens,
To a soul that for so long was forsaken, and now can’t be shaken,
Her plate is full of confidence as she stands taller to claim what was mistaken,
For her dignity was never traded, it was taken.
Now her mind is straightened

She becomes a mother and understands that time is of value,
And then mama always out with the wolves, looking out for hers,
Ignoring the wounds that are caused by her tight shoe,
her face shows the look, but you may never have a clue,
until you are a mother on the hook.

About this poem

The fear and weakness instilled in a woman in this part of the world have always felt like covering up for the strength and royalty that she carries within herself. Destiny will always remain signed and sealed in the hands of the creator of diversity. I write poems to relieve my emotions, this is one of the many but this specific poem was meant to inspire my little girl in the near future.
