The Real She

Ruddy, delicate, velvety and rosy
shiny, sweet, caring and lovely
soft like a flower, firm like a rock
a creature in its perfect form!
So protective
that God chose her fit to preserve
in her womb, generations of humanity
So trustworthy
that a new-born’s first meal
is the milk of her breast
So remarkable
that she is made the first of teachers
As a mother,
she’s the foundation of growth
As a sister
she’s the source of strength
As a wife
she’s the pillar of success
As a daughter
she’s the reason of excellence
on the whole,
she is the life force
of the universe,
worthy of our attention and love
