A Soldier Woman

What is she, but all that she is. With that, a heart of a soldier. She submits into a battle within her so that she rises above the enemy. She lives. Her soul bleeds back into her roots to fight another day. And another day and another. She fights to fight better. She who sacrifices to hold a family together. She'd die a thousand times to cross over poverty lines. She has seeds to protect. Always second to man her struggle will forever be more than. Her word is her gun. With that, a heart of a soldier. Her love deeply lies on the trenches. Holding her head above the dirt and mud, her tears reluctantly drenches. She who is emotionally intelligent. She who is is made to be virtuous and resilient. A Soldier Woman.
