I'm feeling poetic this morning, probably because this is Poetry month. Through out the month of April I plan to post a poem a day. Wish me luck! Better yet why not join me in the celebrations.

*** Sweet, soft, and vulnerable, 

weaknesses she encased
 in a bullet proof mantle
 behind her emotional shield.

This Amazon of the ghetto,
warrior princess of the streets, 
didn't know she needed saving
 until faced  against a greater authority.

Captured firmly,
She ceased  resisting, 
conceding to the 
significantly better opponent 
that trapped her in its snare.

She surrendered to the victor,
in the arms of her
 Ghetto warrior ***

Thank you!
