I’m feeling poetic this morning, probably because this is Poetry month. 



*** 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!
