Confounded

Updated on December 17, 2011

I am a woman complex.
mine is a dance to perplex.
i ponder and wander,
try never to squander
and practice the art of reflex!



I am a woman of conviction,
who is often one great contradiction.
I cry and I sigh
as my soul learns to fly,
pursuing life's grand benediction.



I am a woman evolving,
whose psyche is ever revolving.
I am free to agree
and embrace life's capri,
busy with all things absolving.



I am a women who's yearning
to successfully navigate turning...
'tis with humor and joy
I, each challenge, employ
with a lust for insatiable learning.



I am a woman profound...
Who's not too hard to confound...
but I'm tough when its rough
and I'm no powder puff...
and strive to amaze and astound!



Yes, I am a woman complex
my dance guaranteed to perplex
i ponder and wander
but am no grand responder
for i cant seem to learn how to text!

      This is some of the most complex rhyming I've seen in poetry -- ever. Seriously, I mean that. And you do it so naturally that it never feels forced or out of place. This is a great poem.

      What a fantastic Poem tender heart!!. Its one of those poems that could easily become an anthem piece, for well... woman all over the world. That's one thing I love about your poetry, while it may seem on one hand whimsical and fun. It always holds a greater and deeper meaning.Like Doug said it never feels forced. It just flows so wonderfully. voted across the board

      I agree with Doug Turner Jr, complex rhyming. You are an amazing poet and being one myself I am most of what you describe, it's the artistic bent in most writers and poets. We are a complex lot. Well done, I loved it.
