WOMEN OF EXTINCTION

We were more popular
When you felt lazy,
More important when
We cooked you potatoes and gravy...

To please our boys and men
We would go to any length,
Even begged for mercy
Were pillars of strength...

We are the glue to glass houses
Being abused by the hour by the day,
Even ignored or unheard of by many
But we will continue to love come what may...

Negatively spoken of around the world
And frequently pacified by our nation,
But the torch GOD placed in our hearts
Is not a symbol of accusation more of edification...

Tear us down kick us to the ground
But we will always strive for equality,
We are free women accepting nothing less
Our guardian angels fill us with spirituality...

We are women born to cease dissention
We are women not women of extinction

    Mary, you blew me away with this one! A strong message, brilliant use of language, soft touch here, pound to the chest there...just an amazing poem. I'm so glad to see this one on the featured poems. KEEP WRITING ... and if this is your style, keep those punches comin' ... a curtsy from Cyndi... a woman of His creation and yet a woman of evolution...

    Gosh, this is the creed by which many women live, Mary. We long to be "women of distinction," but abhor the thought of losing our identities and being slaves to ungrateful mates. You convey your message so well in this rhyme. Bravo! Love, Carolyn
