Tender Age Of Womanhood

"A woman is like a tea bag – you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water."
– Eleanor Roosevelt, Former First Lady of the United States

In the tender age of womanhood
I heard 
I sensed
I felt the pain
The unforgivable currents of unfairness and injustice
That settled on the shore of my body and soul

In the tender age of womanhood
I cried
I smiled 
And keenly wished that tomorrow would be kinder to me

Behind the wall of broken dreams
A tree of energy grew each day
With that tree, I learned 
I explored my mind
From the crack of dawn to the layers of moonless cloudy nights 
To love
To grow
To laugh
To give
To hug
To fall
And to fly up like an eagle 
As sincere as the light of dawn upon a meadow
