I Am Woman

Poem By Irean Verge Hughes

I am woman.
I don to need anyone to validate me...
I am the replenisher of the earth. I am man's glory.
I was made especially by God's own hands
I cannot be duplicated.
I am woman...

I can be hot, warm, cool or downright cold.
I prefer to be loving and loved. But I'm not addicted to either. 'I can be kind
or cruel, clinging or aloof.
Nothing else is made like me. I am unique...
I am woman...

I was Eve in the garden. I was Ruth, I was Esther.
I was Jezebel: I was Delilah. I was the Queen of Sheba,
Deborah, Hannah, Elizabeth, and Miriam the Poet
I was specially chosen to be the Mother of Christ...
I am woman.

I am Cleopatra, Mistress of Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony.
I can tantalize the tantalizer. And tempt the strongest
or deflate your ego like a ten cent balloon.
I am woman.

Treat me gently, and I'll be a jewel.
Treat me kindly and I'll be a friend.
Treat me lovingly, and I'll be a lover.
Treat me tenderly, and I'll give you my heart.
I am woman.

Respect me as a woman. I'll treasure you.
Look at me as if I were your Mistress...
And I'll treat you like a King.
Scorn me and you will find that Hell has no fury.
I AM WOMAN.

Reality Of Love

Oh, to capure the emotion that is present
in every place on Earth.
To embrace the fleeting moment
that is but a fleeting moment.
