Truth Revealed In What She Believes

She is soft and quiet

But eyes are always open

And ears ready to listen

Mind is able to think.

A smile on her face

Reveals confidence,

Sure of who she is and

Who she is determined to be.

The hair is not out of place

And the lines on her forehead

Not broken.

Beauty is not skin deep-

It is in the heart.

She never wears this

endocardial rhythm on her sleeve.

A man's talk is cheap like old wine.

He tries to charm her into distraction.

She remains firm in her


Her Creator, the only God

In her life is the

First Person

She greets in the morning.

Then she focuses on her

Duties to self:

To take care of her own,

Creating atmosphere

With the words

Out of her mouth

Spoken in the truth

To defend her position

That she has worked

So hard to become.

Making her needs known

To the Father God first;

She knows That when God is

asked, it shall be given;

And what she seeks,

It shall be

Found; and then,

All the right doors

Shall be opened

To her.

Who Is The Woman?

W ell

O rganized

M otivated

A ffluent and

N otorious.

Women In History

To be a woman in the 1950s

Women had their place in the home,

A matriarch only to be;

To be a woman in the 1970s,

Liberation is what they wanted to see.

To be a woman in the 1990s,

More women were in the work place

And in the 2000's,

Women are leaders, achievers and

In higher positions

All in a faster pace.

Let all the men respect

Their positon,

Still maternal, sensitive and


But she has the

Ability to make

Stand by herself

That is

For Sure,

Your essay is wonderful. So very interesting and true. I enjoyed reading your essay very much. Women today still have to fight for equality around the world which is nonsensical to me.
