Woman

I am woman, by the Mother Earth borne
Risen from a promise, later deceived
Bequeathed pure love, yet by temptation scorned.

Fertile garden of wisdom, I adorn.
Destined to bear knowledge, thus, I conceived.
I am woman, by the Mother Earth borne.

Strengthened by time yet by betrayal torn,
Death came whilst alive and no one dare grieved
Bequeathed pure love yet by temptation scorned.

Cool forest mist is my only sojourn,
A luxuriant solace seldom achieved.
I am woman, by the Mother Earth borne.

Nurturing hands soothe the hearts hurt by thorn,
With tenderness, flaming passion lived
Bequeathed pure love yet by temptation scorned.

I wonder until when I will reap spurn,
Until when all these agony be heaved.
I am woman, by the Mother Earth borne.
Bequeathed pure love, yet by temptation scorned.
