She Is Gospel

When a woman is just a woman 
the world waits not for her wishes and woes
It seeks to rape the rose of her youth and ravage her assertive reason,
she must become more than mortal meat, she must rise to where hot spirit flows
accelerating the bloodletting of her zen into a hostile zeitgist, she makes endurance a weapon,
the gestation of her gestalt confronting the civil and savage alike, sharp beauty is all she knows
becoming a love hunter with no remorse, womb driven, wasting no color of season,
learning to weep over the bones of bastards, to scream through shadows,
reaping light from simple eyes, heart uncommon
Eve believes God as she grows -

    Love it, Justin.. : } " she makes endurance a weapon"..."the gestation of her gestalt confronting the civil and savage alike" ...Absolutely brilliant! From mortality, stretching and growing to spiritualism - with such intuition, strength and beauty, beyond the world is where all women should reach for so that they may see mother earth in full view, and understand we are creators of destinies we've never dreamed of.

    When a woman uses her heart, mind, strength and soul at full capacity, she deserves to have the world at her fingertips... Inspiring and powerful lines, Justin! You have a great respect for the female gender and it shows...

    I like the biblical references. I also enjoyed the rawness of the piece, it felt like the aftermath of birth.

    Glad that you came out with your own take of your theme, Justin. Excellently direct. Though deep, it does not hide but rather exposes more truth about the woman being just what she is. I guess I went extreme with my terse version. :-)
