Prose - A Birthday

For beauty
Time stops
For love
There are no clocks
Today, tomorrow, forever
Wisdom filling the joy pools
With teardrops
As a woman emerges
From waves
Pounding
On the sands
Ready to stake her claim
Upon the shores
Of life
Shedding her youth
To wear
The cloak
Of strength
As she walks
Among men
Who step aside
In awe
Of the former princess
Who now reigns
As Queen
Of her domain
No longer begging
For her mate
But instead
In blinding allure
Challenging the prince
As never before
Because today
She is no longer
A girl
Today
She is his equal

I just wrote this one for a young lady I know. I put it on her facebook page.... we'll see what she say's... but I think the prose part is just shedding the need to rhyme though rhyming is very challenging in the sense of doing it within the true context of your ideas and not just to shove something in there... thanks for reading this one so quickly!
