I'm A Tougher Woman

I'm woman with fists;
a raspy voice heard,
steel eyes, cold and fierce
yet with soft skin,
so warm when held...

I'm a tougher woman you see.

People see me small-
a child inside-
weaker than a crispy leaf
of fall that dangles from
a tree...
But people not know, till
they make me defensive-
that I'm tougher than brick,
stronger than concrete-

I'm a tougher woman you see.

 So don't haunt me, other ladies-
So don't leer me, other men-
I've got too much crap to take
when I've got work to be a lady.
There's trash that overfills the bucket,
and one dish too many in the sink.

I raise myself and its kind of hard-
I'm a tougher woman you see.

    Great hard pictures you paint. She is not a woman I would want to tangle with, but she is one that I would like to call friend!
