Older Women – A Poem of Strength

Often overlooked, cause youngins don’t know
Where she has been or where she will go…
if stepped to wrong

She is seen in the past,
In black and white
She has lived through wrong, and can recognize right
But she knows how to hold her words

She has been walked away from
Left behind some, and though she was loved, or could have been
She stopped settling for boyfriends or now and thens
Cause she is all out or all in

Seasoned, mature, broad or dame
Mrs., Ms, all the same cause she
Worked for it, earned it, babies, husbands, others and lovers
Now stronger, straighter, tolerant, but no foolishness allowed
Younger women would do themselves proud
If they leaned on and learned from…the older woman
