    The Woman

    A strong being
    An epitome of beauty
    The glory of a man
    The best of all creation

    A mother, a wife
    A companion,
    A friend,
    The pillar of the home

    A teacher, a student,
    A helper, a caretaker
    A man,
    A repairer, a destroyer

    Treat her like an egg
    Because she’s fragile
    Hold her tenderly and
    Carefully lest she breaks

    Treat her well
    As you do yourself
    Love her as much as you
    Do love yourself

    Correct her with words
    Scold her, punish her
    But never beat her
    Lay a finger on her

    Mind the kind of words
    You say to her
    Her emotion are triggered
    To you have said.

    Tolerate her
    Be patient with her
    Get the best from her
    Show her love

    Shower her with gift
    Protect her
    Honours her
    Because she’s a part of you

    Give her attention
    Get what you deserve from her
    Make her happy
    You’re stolen her heart.

    Treat her like the queen
    Treat her as the mother
    Treat her like the wife
    Treat her like companion.

    She’s not a baby-making machine
    She’s not pleasure machine
    She’s not punching bag
    She’s not all of the above

    The woman
    Is an unique creature
    Incomparable features
    Endowed with beauty

    Don’t treats her like trash
    Treat her like an egg
    The woman knows
    More than man knows.

    The Evolution of My Freedom

    Come go take a journey back and
    witness the birth of my spirit.
    I claim greatness to he who resides in me and
    who gave me a sense of dignity.
    As trauma and pain and living against the grain
    take a tole on my little girl soul
    I look into eyes like mine and and
    give her permission to cry
    Cry for those that tried to steal our soul
    cry for those that were taken home
    Existing in the essence of those that came before me
    and were reassured that one day their prayers would set us free
    The testimony that we have endured submerged us in the
    best of the test
    as we take steps into the light
    we continue to push through and fight
    Come here lil one and hug my heart with your sweet embrace
    I see the promise of hope on your face
    I spread my arms to merge our strength and love and
    just as I thought we fight like a glove
    My spirit hears the sweetest sound
    she whispers that she is glad that she was found
    She goes on to tell me that she was sad and lonely for oh so long
    and glad that I looked back and took the time to settle down
    She holds my hand and we begin to walk our journey together
    allowing our hearts soar like a feather
    hop, skip, sing and play we dance and laugh our day away
    long into the evening our heartbeats a symphonic rhythm
    and our cheeks blush a shade of crimson
    we walk and talk and reminisce and discuss the moments that we missed
    we nestle next to the rolling stream and
    each let out an exhale of scream
    we laugh out loud and giggle together
    and realizing we have always been here forever
    her with I and I with her
    Knowing from this day forward we would always be heard
    the universe will hear us as one

    Near a Wall

    eyes open
    near a wall
    stale air
    daylight near
    bird chirps
    car passes

    stand up
    near a wall
    collect thoughts
    forgot them all
    fear struck
    two bucks
    in pocket
    what luck

    near a wall
    almost six
    feeling sick

    near a wall
    car pulls up
    door opens
    fix in sight
    bottle of white
    bills spent
    down white went

    near a wall
    forgot it all

    why dont poemhunter rewards ranks to their poet members
    there should be a ranking system starting from down to highest level, it will encourage the poets as well
    the increment in rank would be based on no. Of poems and no.of comments done and received.
    i may say you understand my request

    Any suggestions? I'm new to this.


    There is no time to say goodbye,
    Because life is sweetly, succinctly
    A drink with a bittersweet, sour-bite

    There is no goodbye, only love's
    Whisper-strength, carrying us
    Down the river,
    Over mountain tops and wheat fields
    And concrete forests aglow with
    After-evening's afterthoughts.

    Because when we go, we don't go far:
    We go into another's drink,
    We go into another's whisper.
    For when we go, we don't go far;
    We go into the hearts and mirrors
    And lives and wives.
    Because life is sweetly, succinctly

    My sun doesn't shine like yours
    rise like yours
    give light like yours

    My rain doesn't pour like yours
    shower like yours
    flood like yours

    My butterfly doesn't evolve like yours
    change colors like yours
    leave behind traces of beauty like yours

    My heart doesn't
    beat like yours
    feel like yours
    heal like yours
    break like yours
    burn like yours

    My soul doesn't feel like yours
    give like yours

    But somehow I want all of you to soak up like a sponge

    But my eyes don't see like yours
    or cry like yours

    So it sit back and wait until i can be yours
    Until we have one goal
    one love
    one space
    one vision
    one blessing
    one fate
    one house
    one last name

    two cars
    two rings
    two minds
    two souls

    i'll wait until
    My sun shines like yours
    until my butterfly flies like yours
    until my heart loves like yours
    together; on one accord
