Beautiful Creatures


The soil which we plant our seeds
beautifully dangerous, remarkable creatures
strangely complicated, a delicate rare breed
shelters, nurturers, the definition of strength and warmth
crazy-sadistic, seductive-angelistic beings

Women, all one of a kind
incredible, intellectual, beyond and between the lines
pain and hardship they endure
apologies that at times we're blind
self-worth, the world is what they deserve

    It's heartwarming to know that there are men out there who genuinely have respect for women - both men and women should be shown respect, but throughout history women have so often been considered to be inferior or second class citizens. Thank young kelvin - good one. (Report) Reply

    Well sir, that paints us in a kind light! It was charming to read and thank you, as one of these creatures for this
    Poem. We can be a bit crazy and annoyingly emotional but generally, we rock! Lol. (liked TR's comment too!) (Report) Reply

    wow..what a brilliant idea and topic to write.
    women......the most beautiful delicate complicated creatures.god must be so genius that created women.
    i wonder if the god himself is a woman.just like that ancient greek god i mean- Isis-.
    or the world and the universe is female.
    i have always thought why or how could some people like Friedrich Nietzsche(one of my great witers) write those things about women? ? ? ! ! ! the only answer i could find is that he began the feminism.

    i think women deserve even more than this.even more than isis.

    not only the women but also the men praise this great art.
    i enjoyed alot.
    god bless you~nb (Report) Reply
