woman of courage - Mother!

Woman of Courage!
You went were angels feared to thread.
You were fearless, courageous
Strong, ambitious and dedicated!

Your love was boundless
You oozed confidence
Your strength, my strength
Woman of faith, peace, love
Endurance!

Where fore art though fear?
Where fore art though tears?
Where fore art though indignation?
None, therefore I say none!

Woman of courage, woman of strength
Woman of love, woman of endurance
What do I take from thou?
What do I learn from thee?

Patience, love, tolerance
Sacrifice, forgiveness, faith
Selflessness, perseverance,
Hope where there is none,
Smiling through tears,

Never giving up
Braving unkind weather
In search of a better life
For family, neighbour, friend
And foe alike.

I salute thee Woman of Courage
I am for you were
I have for you gave
I smile through tears
For you shed more.

This is the woman who made me who I am!

dedicated to women around the world

I dedicated this poem to my late mother, and all the women and mothers out there around the world. For the dedication they give to their families and everyone else out there. Viva women Viva. "You touch a women, you touch a stone"

We cannot pay enough tribute

We cannot pay enough tribute to our mothers. For they are the wombs that carried me and you and even our other half, the men.
We need to learn to appreciate ourselves and our women more than we we do now.

Nice poem

oh my!

Oh my gosh, thank you very much. Men, cruel or otherwise, unfortunately they were born of women. So we all need to pay tribute to Mothers, even those that are said "not born of woman"(Macbeth).

Thanks.
