Battle of the Sexes

Men think they hold the power
but we women know better.

Behind every great man
is an even better woman
who bound his shoe laces
helped him day by day
showed him where
his path should go
with a single-minded thread
and a wish he’d never be
damaged
the mother sends him on
his way.

The Sacred Feminine

Love is the drug of which
she’s sometimes guilty of
too much dependence.

Too, too fragile
a fine bone china
she is so easy to break
at times
but somehow she finds
the way to mend.

She makes mistakes but
always pays the price.

She’s strong,
patient
kind
compassionate
caring.

She’s kept secrets
for her best friend
and
would die before revealing.

Makes promises despite shadows
which rumple the smoothness
of her day.

She is wife,
she is mother,
she is sister,
daughter,
friend.

She is all beautiful
women of the world
the

sacred feminine.

She

SHE

Soft and gentle
see her there

staring

But, she could kill you
with one glance
given half the chance.

Daring

She is bold, but not reckless
brave, but not feckless.

She has a quiet courage and
a cunning stealth to help her
in the winning of her ways.

She can be

a mother, a lover, a wife, a child.

She is rich in treasure beyond our
wildest measure, for she has the gift
of sharing the most beautiful
colours of all life.

She is what she needs to be.

She is every woman

And

Every woman is…. She.
