    Arianna. I agree that Norman`s st0ry is terrific, yesterday I bought a top of the range Fiat Multipla from making $6102 this last four weeks and-just over, $10 thousand last-munth. without a doubt it is the easiest work I have ever had. I started this 8-months ago and pretty much immediately got me minimum $85, per-hr. I use this great link, kep2.com (Report) Reply

    Great Poem, thank you. I feel this Poem fits life as I have seen it. There are powerful and phenomenal women within our presence and this Poem helps describes, to some extent, the seeds of power. I am a man. I ask of other men: Have you not met a women who takes your breath away? And you may wonder why, well this Poem may help understand why. (Report) Reply

    Love the poem. But, unfortunately, I note that it still contains vestiges of patriarchy. Three of the four stanzas refer to the impression that she makes on men. As if she, as a woman, were to derive her value from men. Hence, the reliance on men works at cross purposes to the moral of the poem, that a woman's value comes from within. (Report) Reply
