Nothing compares to her exotic allure
One glance brings an immediate desire
Painfully close enough to feel a fire
Each second burns when not beside her
Ready for anything at a beckon moment
Fresh and more than capable to own it
Everybody knows she causes a friction
Casting the light we want to be under
The essence of what makes us want her
Is this what perfection is only about
On second thought, I know the reality
No woman needs pressure of a pedestal

Women ( Acrostic )
W... Women have a story, since the begining of time.
O...Over the centries, we have come a long way.
M... Mothers we become - for that is our role in life.
E... Every man should be grateful, that a woman gave him birth.
N... Never underestimate a woman - for you could be surprised...
Written by Lucilla M. Carrillo
Note; Just a small tribute to us women
on Woman's Day. Hope you Like it...

Many women deserve a crown, anD
Often, they don't need academiA
Thanks to many hats; we'd saY
Her hands calms rainbow waves
East, West, North and South, she's mother earth
Resuscitating troubled hearts
Saving those motherless from emptiness.

W omen are priceless treasures only mined with the loveliest tool of a caring heart
O ptimism is defined in their ingenuity with a worth irreplaceable as life
M en becomes helpless babes without cleaving to them in their lonely life journeys
E arth becomes lifeless without their wombs bearing fruit
N eed is no necessity without their hands’ industry of excellence
A ngels they are but without wings
R evolutionary to the core but lenient in their touch
E motions best dictionary the world has ever discovered
P ain is told and subdued by them even in the pangs of childbirth
R est is ensured by them even in times of terror
I deas are not only dreams to these treasures as they turn houses into homes
C hildren are sheltered in them for nine months without paying any rent or utilities
E nthusiastic of a kite flying against the tide is their vision for distinction
L oyalty is their hallmark as their fragility is ruined with their lovers’ betrayal
E ndless is their love when respected and refined with tender loving care
S easoned in their preserved taste, a blend of sugar and salt
S ervice is their trounce against society’s challenges
T alented to cook in the kitchen and rule in government
R iches are discovered only by the wise
E xperienced in the times and seasons of life
A spiring to the horizon with hopes that can touch the seat of God
S ensitive to perceive a needle fall or ticking clock
U nderstandable to the desires of crying of babies or the kisses of fathers
R eachable notwithstanding distance or difficulty
E ducators in their natural state, turning crawling babies into running heroes
S pecial in their makeup, priceless as treasures

Wonderful enchanting creatures. Some can set you on fire, or freeze you with a look.
Often their greatest beauty lies deep within.
Ministers of great pleasure, or sometimes agony.
Ever mysterious, difficult to read.
Naughty or nice, never know quite what to expect. Can steal your heart
and crush it, or turn it into a golden treasure. What would the
world be without them, boreing I think most men would agree.
For all of the fabulous ladies at poetrysoup.com, and all over the world. Love you all

Homosapiens is the existence
Under the general influence of life
Machines don’t fit into this description
Animals are so beneath its class
Needs, wants and risks characterize it
Immortality beyond its reach
Trespassing its sense away from the heart
Yields a state less glorified than animals

BRING BACK OUR GIRLS..........
Bestiality in human faces
Religion in disguised cruelty
Intolerance puts fetters upon morality
Never-ending bloodbath of humanity
Generations trapped in infinite cry for freedom
Brutality finds refuge in gothic arms
Affliction upon innocent souls
Concerned voices in the wilderness
Knell of terror in unison sounds echo
Ode to Sambisa occupies my mind
Under the forest in bondage dreams are
Reality that haunts mankind
Girlhood ruddled by stains of pains in captivity
Infinite cries, lies, pains, sadness………
Rationale for my anger
Let thy tears their doom spell
Silence already spoken.

Praying in her back room
Her eyes focused on her Father
Even when downtrodden
Never giving up
On her family,
Making it her mission to
Embrace love and the ability to
Nestle their desires
Absentmindedly she forgets her own significance, while
Love and trust is all she
Wish for, to
Open the doors to her heart, she
Magically succeeds to keep
Never forgetting, that to get love you need to give love…

Garnet symbolize trust and to be friendly,
human blue eyes are like sapphire representing loyalty,
those full of wisdom, health an love symbolizes rubies.
Beautiful like diamonds,
passionate like an Amethyst,
or those who are aquamarine is full of youth an richness.
Your like a Emerald that symbolizes rebirth,
you twist and you twirl,
but desirable like a rare white pearl.
Your a topaz who symbolizes healing,
looking into people's hearts,
an knowing what they are really feeling.
knowing your true self is to find on your own,
with each birth comes with a birthstone,
birthstones that represent you,
symbolizing a jewel,
is like symbolizing a woman,
they all have natural beauty,
they all have value.

When the storm erupts
Seeing is Believing
When the Weather Nights
Seeing is Coming Forth
When Birds Fly
The House Settles
What To Do…
When The Storm Settles.

Whether young or old it breathes.
Hearing within the heart murmurs.
Intelligence rejects what it wreathes.
Sense shall not detect any termers.
Piercing your will, it ultimately gains.
Each hint shall gather more strength.
Repetitive pulse of unknown pains,
Searching to reach hearts length.
Our spirit, soul has no reason why.
Fear may set the fire or make a sigh.
Loneliness shall encourage the feeling.
One may recognize mysterious reeling.
Victimized, helpless of its dealing,
Each step grows closer, to its revealing.

Hunting in packs
Pleasure seekers on the loose,
Aggressively unsuspecting victims, abuse.
Callously innocent women gang-rape,
Karma in jail they will not escape
(note: gang-rape is a transitive verb and therefore one word)

Looking in the mirror can be
Overwhelming at times.
Viewing yourself can make you
Either love yourself or hate yourself.
Observe others but that mirror will make you
Unhappy with yourself, until you
Realize how beautiful you really are.
Seeing yourself as a lovely woman will
Eventually make you
Love yourself. Being happy and
Friends with yourself will make your life complete.

I AM a
Golden girl of faith, love and hope
On a rocky path of personal growth
Dedicating my heart to finding Truth
Destined to be rejected by the matrix
Even though life came crashing down
Still I search for what matters
Shining my light despite the darkness
