She Is...

 
She said she didn’t dwell too much on the past things
“Resolve the issue and move on
Time is of the essence and if you don’t work the plan
You can easily be left behind”

They’d call her a bitch, a ball buster, all those things
Behind her back
But the truth was whenever she’d flex her knowledge
To get the work done, they just didn’t like it

She has worked longer hours than anyone else
Then go home and be a mother
A teacher
A counselor
A planner
Manager
CEO
CFO
Maintenance and Operations
Therapist
And yet somehow still find to some time to herself
To relax and recharge
Before another day would begin
To get that bread
And deal with the bullshit male counterparts spewed

She was mentally tough
Spiritually firm
Emotionally strong
And still a fragile soul
Compassionate
Understanding
Sympathetic

She’s been the dream girl
Trying to be better
She’s been a leader
The example to many young women
She’s been the pioneer
The innovator with a greater purpose
She’s been down on her luck
And ridden the wave of success
She’s been beaten and broken
And put back together
Fallen and risen with too many times to count
She has the heart of warrior
And fought bigger battles than any man has ever known
She has cried tears that overflowed rivers
And roared louder than ominous thunder
She has given life
And at times sacrificing her own

She is a…
Mother
Sister
Daughter
Friend
Spouse
Neighbor
Stranger
Passerby
She is the sum of love in family
The history of those who suffered in the past
At times she may have been afraid
But always willing to face her fear
Striving be better than the rest
She is woman
She is…
           You.
