' For Only A Strong Woman Knows How To Let Go Of Her Problems'

'FOR ONLY A STRONG WOMAN KNOWS HOW TO LET GO OF HER PROBLEMS'

A woman, taken from the rib of Adam
is part of man, a builder like man!
A woman, referred to as lotus flower
is a woman with folded hands
that raises prayers to heavens above.

A woman bears seeds of life
in her womb and gives birth to life;
A woman cradles her child from dusk
to the dawning of light
and repeats the labor of love
to every birth and rebirth of a child.

Who is stronger to listen to
the woes and pain in human labor?
Who is much stronger to deal
with a man, her spouse - the builder?
Who is much stronger to lay
down her own pain and struggles
in the lotus symbol of surrender
to the Great Author of Life in prayers?

It is she - the strong woman in our time!
