Women A point of view

Women
A point of view

They – flowers of diverse, exquisite, exotic, mysterious beauty –
are beauties that are meant to feed the eyes of men,
are beauties that are meant to stimulate the minds of men,
are beauties that are meant to set fires in the hearts of men,
are beauties that are meant to give wing to the spirit of men,
are beauties that are meant to be the resting place for the souls of men.

Women

They have become the thorns upon the stems of roses,
They have become the thistles that surround their flower,
They have become the poisonous plants that kill off pursuers,
They have become the weeds that strangle – overrun beauty 
and assassinate all that nourishes passion, love, life, the spirit.
Men – responsible – has not evolved fast enough to keep up / get past.
