'Poetic Thoughts For Women'


Women of desire; your mind burning like fire, got that miss independent grown women shit style.

You walk past and men try to grasp that intellectual sexy style that you flash.

You speak with wisdom of all ages; like you wrote your own book and define yourself in all pages.

No one can ever say you don’t have your own; bills paid on time, never to be postponed.

You got the swagger of a young lady, but yet a mind of a woman.

Wants a man who can keep up with her and hold his own, ready to put his grown man shit on and take his place beside her on the throne.

Her skills events have shape her to be who she is…. as you see.

Never to let some want to be “player” or so called “real man” crush or shatter her dreams.

She shows that she can play with the big boys and not get burned.

She stays focus to the game and the task at hand, showing that she can survive without a man.

Her body view makes you think she’s an easy target at hand, but trust and believe a woman can hold herself down against any difficult or violent stand.

These words that I speak to you women are none but simply poetic strength.

To join together in numbers to bring out the courage in all; to trust and believe that there are other woman like yawl.

Women please speak out and stand tall, give that independent style a call….because united you are strong but divided you will fall.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
