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

Poet's Notes about The Poem

this piece is my way of saying thank you to the women that have inspired me, from the ones who helped raised me to the ones I've encounter through my life.
I learned how to be a man from a woman so thank you.

    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

    I go for this, Kelvin. Thank you so much for writing with women as the main character. Yes, I hope there will be more poems to uplift the place of women on earth and among creation. (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

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
