Woman of Valor

August 19, 2015

By Tekoa Manning

Oh woman of valor, oh women of strength
Rise to the occasion, trample defeat.
For you’re not woman of mere flesh, blood, and bones
But, woman of spirit, mind, and soul.

Phenomenal lady you have wisdom beyond years
you won’t accept ignorance brought on by trifling fears.

You’re Jacqueline Kennedy clothed in blood stained coat.
You’re Harriet Tubman, yes Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Powerful woman, you are young yet oh so old.
You come across bashful, yet you are very bold.

You’re Scarlet O’Hara and you’ll never be hungry again.
You’re Lady Godiva riding bare back in the wind.

Courageous female, you have vibrancy in your feet.
You dance through life so smoothly, never missing a beat.

You’re Maya Angelou and still you rise.
You’re Louisa May Alcott, a little woman filled with pride.

Clairvoyant goddess, laughter fills your voice
yet you make silence and serenity your first cherished choice.

You’re Marilyn Monroe sexy, sensual, and sleek.
You’re Rosa Parks, you’ll sit where you please.

Compassionate mother, you bring substance to this earth
through pain, ache, and suffering a new life is birthed.

Oh woman of valor, oh woman of strength
you’re the daughter of a Great and Mighty King.
Clothe yourself in purity, righteousness, and truth
and you will be successful in all you do.

Oh woman of valor, oh woman of strength
Rise to the occasion, trample defeat.
For you’re not woman of mere flesh, blood, and bones
But woman of spirit, mind, and soul.
