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!

      A very intricate play on words...done so uniformly, uniquely and creatively! A great message in verse with a twist at the end. This really shows the depth of your ability as a poet. Thanks for sharing. WB

      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.

      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

      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.
