A lady can be a lady

when a gentleman is a gentleman.

A truth often denied

by low life and, awful, bitter men.

A lady is a lady

to save her own life and her brother's.

Being a lady contributes to

a woman's salvation and that of others.

When one is a lady,

one will accept and endure one's struggle.

One will live honorably and avoid

being reduced to what lives in jungles.

Ladies are leaders, teachers,

who many times teach in silence.

They teach the greatest lessons

sending them straight even to hearts of the most violent.

Those who never value the struggle

of a lady shall soon be eliminated.

A lady's struggle will always

one day be known and appreciated.
