Women in Bloom


We are women in bloom--
strong, gentle, and understanding
we feel deeply, we give plenty
we are mothers, daughters, sisters

we are the love of your life
or the one that got away

sometimes we do it all
with grace and a smile on our face
we work, raise families,
rise early in the morning
and tuck our children in bed at night

and sometimes we go at it, alone

we come in all shapes and sizes
in all the colors of the rainbow
and we are beautiful just the same

we are young, we are old
and forever young at heart

we are writers, artists, farmers,
scientists, teachers, businesswomen,
doctors, inventors, entrepreneurs,
leaders, lawyers, or we play sports

yet we are not defined by our job,
whatever it may or may not be,
but by the depth of our soul
and the fullness of our heart

it is our choice to be a woman
in whichever way makes us happy
because we must be free

Happy International Women's Day 2014! xx

  8. This is a wonderful poem, Loredana! I like how you present us with women if all ages and from all walks of life. I also like the idea that we are defined "by the depth of our soul / and the fullness of our heart" rather than by our jobs.
