What Fascinates Me
I stand in awe of courageous women
Brave women who have broken out
Thrown off the shackles of domination
Said there is more to life, I deserve it
Who speak passionately without fear
And are willing to die for a just cause.
I stand in awe of thoughtful women
Who raise their children with values
Teaching them to do what is right
Admonishing them when necessary
Realizing they are molding the future.
I stand in awe of strong women
Who claim their rightful place in life
Teaching by excellent example
Unafraid to be bold when bullied.
I stand in awe of gracious women
Who stand tall and wear a smile
Who are admired for their presence.
I stand in awe of talented women
Who sing, dance and make us laugh.
I stand in awe of my mother!
