Virtuous

We are not dolls which once you are bored you place on a shelf

We are not doormats you can wipe your feet provoking hatred toward ourselves

We are not interested nor do we have the tolerance for playing childish games

We deserve to be respected, cherished, and loved, not called out of our names

We are not feebleminded we are not inferior

We are royalty, Queens, defined by the inner beauty of our exquisite hearts,

praised for the structure of our exterior

We are a pivotal example for our sons and daughters

It’s not always by choice, but if we must we can also assume the role of a father

We are understanding, loyal, faithful friends, and passionate lovers

We are beauty

Just look around, we come in different sizes and a wide variety of colors

We are strength

We were made to push out watermelons from our lemons honey

We are savvy

We can be versatile when it comes to making that money

We are joy

Our smiles can brighten up the dimmest of rooms

We are fragile

But watch out; a woman scorned can seal your doom

We are caring

Not only are we capable of raising our own, but if need be someone else’s children

We are healers

A women’s love is equivalent to penicillin

We are peace

We create an atmosphere of warmth while resting in our arms

We are soothing

The calming hypnosis in the most disastrous storms

We are equipped to multitask like it’s nobody’s business

We juggle our children, relationships, house, career,

Ladies, we are fearless!

So to the next time, someone asks, “Who can define a virtuous woman?”

You tell them, “I Can!”

Because WE are W-O-M-E-N,

We are WOMEN!
