I Am A Woman - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

I am a Woman
Worthy of a Kingdom
A jewel, rare and exquisite
Mysterious as the night
Deep as the ocean
Vulnerable as a butterfly's wing
I am a Woman
Soul, old as the earth,
Blood liquid passion
Heart, ship of sorrows and hurt
I am a Woman
A mystical being
Beautiful in my complexity
