to be a woman

Searching for the wings everyday 
She was full of tantrums for them
Searching for them, on her shoulders
Thought they will grow out
like her new permanent teeth
Like a pupae she wove the thread
of dreams around her
and out came a butterfly
and a girl metamorphosed
into a woman
A woman with wings
Wings of grace and beauty...

    Thanks Pd....in my opinion to be a complete woman we have to search inside...be comfortable with who we are,focus more on our minds than our body....internal beauty is wt matters in the end and all women hv that...:)))
