Diamond and Stone

Diamond and Stone

A Poem by Aehr

They say that she's a woman
So she's fragile and weak
Do they know what she's been through,
Things of which she does not speak?

She's had broken dreams
Suffered more than a man
She can beat every one of them 
And she herself knows she can

She's a mother and a sister
A daughter and a friend
A constant source of inspiration
Broken hearts, she can mend

You men, you think you're harder right?
That she's delicate and alone?
She can bring you down, and you better know
That diamond is harder than stone

No offence to the men out here, of course, but in many parts of the world I've noticed how the put women on a lower level. Which is utterly wrong.

Did you know that woman suffer from four times as much stress then men have ever know? recent studies have show this to be true. I hate how woman are considered to be so precious then are disregarded so much at times.. A fool would think that a house wife as little to do when in reality they raise and nurturer our children. Men have their part too but to forget the woman is to forget who raised us who we love etc. There are exceptions in different family of course and i am not saying this happens to everyone just quite a lot of people.

This poem's really good...it's short but it speaks a lot...that though women may not seem strong physically...they are much much more stronger than men mentally and emotionally...which is a fact...and the last line is the cherry on the cake...a big red cherry...loved it :)

I agree, it's wrong. You've written a strong piece about the poewr of women. nice job :)

And she herself knows she can- woops... pardon me here, just a little advice, this "and" in this line can be removed if it sounds right so the two lines there won't turn into a sentence.

Great going here though, because you managed to describe women's tough exterior and interior.

But of course, despite the hardness, there is still a great loving heart in us (:

Your words are true. You never know what a person had done and had to survive. Few men get to know the pain and hard times of a woman. Woman are strong and keep the pain inside. I like the complete poem. A strong ending to a excellent poem. Thank you.
