Formed from the seed of love their feelings prime,
a girl child was woven heroine,
biblical prophetess in time;
Deborah was such, the name chosen, mine.

Like a lightening bolt was she conceived,
a joining of aspirant souls,
seeking other primal roles,
into controversy; she was received.

This fiery woman, a rousing Queen Bee
Debbie was raised, the mothering maid.
A leader, biblical judge conveyed
hers the responsibility to creed.

Matriarch of Jews, she, from the tribe Ephraim,
A mother of Israel was she.
The equal of every he,
This, the burden given me, by name branded. 

Upon the shoulders of such a frail form
this ancestral burden was laid.
The unknown outcome heaven made
all of life is tested when Deb "bees" are born.

I'm not sure that everyone reading this before me, has seen the depth, and perhaps the "weight" you have borne, wearing such a significant name......so revealing in between each line of this bio. You have been tested , and perhaps challenged, to wear this name, but no one could wear it better or with such grace. :)

Something in a name tells about a person. Much like it is with you, Deb. Deborah of the Old Testament is full of wisdom and courage. Your poetry reflects much of that, so's the glimpse you've given us through this piece. HUgs and congrats! :) Kim
