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.

A beautiful ode to the Queens through the words of a king !This is truly an uplifting write Sante!
The thought, the approach and the presentation are very unique and surprising. The adoration for the qualities came out clearly in your word choice.
Such kings are equals and complementary to the queens. I feel gratified reading this.
Thanks for sharing :-)

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

Beautiful poetry Asante!
Some stunning lines to digest, queens are but mere mortals as are kings....A connectedness is forged often quietly and from a distance. Dressing for the ocassion is to adorn the heart in threads of truth, kindness and trust....to allow yourself to be seen. Starz x
