Strength of a Woman

A blinded eye reaches a tarnished hand

a lovely lady fails in the golden land

a slight turned cheek in painted bliss

a memory forgotten is a persistant kiss

a wall of strength, a mask of grace

a hidden story behind a disguised face

she was naive, a fairytale told

a beautiful story had taken its hold

one morning she woke, her eyes opened wide

the secrets so present, she could no longer hide

she walked with passion in the beating sun

her head held high her knowledge won

her mind was strong, she thought with ease

her hunger for truth brought men to their knees

not a drop of fear, trepidition or pain

she doesnt hesitate to move on again

hair blowing softly she moves on her way

growing more wise with each passing day.
