The true definition of a woman is not based on who she was a child
But who she becomes, with every year that passes
The wrinkles she starts to show, is just another sign of her strength
The gray that starts showing in her hair, is a badge of honor for her
It is there to show all the love she has ever given
To every child she has ever raised, whether birthed or adopted
For every man she has had in her life good or bad
Those extra pounds showing on her body is her royal robe
It's her way of showing the world, what a "Goddess", looks like curvy and full
Her old age is just a sign that she is grown
This beautiful fierce creature is no longer a little girl
She is a fiery, sultry woman
She doesn't worry about silly, piety things, like lip gloss and clothes
But real things like Living life to the fullest and watching her children grow
She stays close with what little family she has left and enjoys every minute of it
Because she realizes just how important family really is
We should not be afraid to get old but welcome it with open arms
