” I Am A Woman “

S- shimmering shining armor… i am a woman
U- undefiable i own the power of truth in my hand
Z-zest the life i hold to belong and fight for my right
E- endured and suffered the burdened i was destined
T- took the path without regrets and without looking back
T- triumphant i rise before you and before God
E- exemplary as i am… ” i am a woman “

P-promise my life not to belong to oblivion
O-offered the most of what i can an ought to be
R-resilience to the world and gain my pedestal
T- tough i shall be to stand for my belief
E-enthrone in love with a heart and soul defined
S-sought wisdom and freedom for living life

S-selflessness and love i bestow on others
A-admiring all the wonders of a woman’s role
N-nothing can be more explicit for… ” i am a woman ”

J-judge me in ways of good and evil, sinner or saint
O- only God knows as he created me by his own breath
S-so gentle he molded me from a rib of a man by his flesh
E-evolving into a light of his creations…” i am a woman ”
