Strength and Dignity

 

Β 



She is clothed with strength and dignity

She laughs without fear of the future



She is loud

And without bounds

She is messy

And bloody



She is lonely

Silly

Sensual

Mystic



She is raw

She is vicious

Visceral

Vigilant

Vibrant



She draws in her surroundings

and swallows the pollution clouding up the atmosphere



She takes what is hers

She takes up space

With her body, her presence, her knowledge, and all the things she has to say



She is clothed in strength and conditioning

-Never knowing which she is feeding

Which she is flaunting

Which she is fleeing  



But she walks briskly

She presses onward with her feet

She is smarter than you think



She is boisterous

She is mean



She is friendly

Fragrant

Fragile

Fawning over the false conceptions of the things she is to be



She is clothed in strength and dignity

And she laughs without fear of the future,

Because she is the future.

The future is in her.
