1120 - SISTERS OF POEMHUNTER


Sisters - look gently into the mirror
You are glorious - Oh yes we can see
Your complexions are so so beautiful
Your eyes are the windows of your souls
Your hair is the crowning of your Glory
Your lips are the source of Truth and Love.

Sisters - you are the apex of God's Ceation
God made you individually and unique
God made you for a purpose - His Handmaidens
God made you to bring Love - Joy - Peace and Order
Into a World dominated by Fear
Inequality - Agression and Dissorder.

Sisters - you alone have the capacity
To nurture a helpless fetus - in your womb
To be another individual - XY a Male
XX a Female - another lovely Sister!
You alone have the capacity to provide
The TLC to nurture those individuals.

Sisters - God created you to be LIGHT
In a Dark World - to be SALT in an...........
Increasingly - decaying - flavourless
And socially and spiritually frozen World.
Look in the mirror - please don't be like men
You are so much more precious than that.

Without our Sisters - what would we men do?
There would be no beauty - no elegance
No cause for Art - no reason for Music
No object for love and adoration.
Sisters - look in the mirror - see your Glory
Fulfil your destiny - Reclaim your inheritance!

This poem is dedicated - collectively and individually - to each of our lovely PH Sisters. Just think how insipid the PH portfolio would be without them!

    You had me at the title :) ....John I'd say this is a masterpiece! ! Not written for just women, but Poemhunter women, love how you pin-point that-you are a sweetheart. I love so many of your lines here, maybe a favorite but very small is 'another sister' :) ...Each stanza a sweet little treat for us ladies to savor~THANKS! !

    sun may find difficulties to shine at night
    for he shares partly to his lovely moon
    but same source of light this moon gets
    its from sun.. the source of energy....
    and it symbolizes man...

    you're the inspiration of every glowing trees
    where doubts fall at the surface
    you're the hero that spots the light
    in ph, ur words are living legacy..

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
