Empowered Women

I am love

Strong yet timid

I am colorful

My thoughts vibrant

My lips red

Ready to conquer

I am a symbol

I am not done justice

Thorns are my protection

They are cut off

As I am only here to represent beauty

I am so much more

I am overlooked

Walked on

Forgotten once I begin to wither away

I flourish your garden

Adding depth beyond compare

I am part of it all

I've seen births

I've seen love blossom

I've seen unimaginable loss

I am much more than beauty

My petals showing every side of me

I am done being detained

My thorns will remain

I will flourish

I will conquer

For I am a woman
