I Am The Image Of Woman

Updated on November 10, 2012

A Poem For My Sisters

I am the image of woman:

Strong

Free

Beautiful.

I am made of flesh and bone

Connected in a way

That is divine.

I am many to all

Daughter

Wife

Teacher

Counselor

Nurse

Preacher

Lover

Friend.

With grace I perform each role

Not as duty

But with honor.

I am the image of woman

Do not force on me

Judgments from the past.

I have come too far to bow

To the hands of ignorance.

I am proud of my past

I embrace my heritage.

With hands of love

I prepare nourishment for my family.

With the gift of wisdom

I turn students into future leaders.

With my voice

I proclaim love

peace

justice

mercy.

I am the image of woman

Look at me and see

past, present, future.

I will only grow stronger

I will age in grace.

I am the image of woman

Too beautiful to ignore.
