Q's > K's

A Poem by Asante.

I am a Queen in a man,
or I wish I were.

A male in Queensland,

notwithstanding everything
the human man represents
when in a woman's hands,

I'm fragile in ego
I shake and cower
where I'm stripped,

resilience
entombed in a body
equals a Goddess,

the hatred of a God
hushed for holiness
in women,

I've seen enough of me,

I'd rather be
the bright glove
to a fine Queen

wiring the world
with love and passion
in eloquent words,

cut the tightrope
and have us all
fall in style

gracefully
at the feet
of what we've yet to see --

if we're even dressed for it, that is.

Wonderfully crafted poem to women. I love it! It's clever, yet well spoken. Very unique, and eloquent, Asante, as your poems seem to be.

Your message: clear; and statements: blunt.

Wonderful description of the feeling that "you've had enough of men" and "it's time for women to take a stand on all fronts; their rightful spot in expression upon this, Earth."

Your poetry speaks volumes and is very elequent.

You are quite the poet.

Much love,

Great and very well worded ode to, and as I read it, not only to the women but to the ones who endure the difficulties of our beings, all those layers, fragile, broken, hurt and awfully fixed. ..

You're a lovely king and can be proud to exist as such. We are all but mere human beings.

We are. My pleasure. Blessings back to you.
Woman, rule the world. We owe much to you. You are everything we are not, gentle spirit. A mother's love will help us conquer all. But, Asante, it is not all sugar and spice for women, check out Boadicea. A good write this.

I definitely shall, Ted. Thank you for the recommendation as well as the commentary!
It's nice to see your given name, a single letter makes quite the change! What a stunning ode! It is a Queen that makes men kings and princes and in the same token makes women queens ;) the one-ness is quite euphoric! Beautifully crafted bro. R xo
