~Native Women~

I wanted to share this with all of you - it says it all.
There is only one flaw in Native Women...

Native Women have strengths that amaze men.


They bear hardships and they carry burdens,


but they hold happiness, love and joy.


They smile when they want to scream.


They sing when they want to cry.



They cry when they are happy


and laugh when they are nervous.


They fight for what they believe in.


They stand up to injustice.


They don't take "no" for an answer


when they believe there is a better solution.




They go without so their family can have.


They love unconditionally.


They cry when their children excel



and cheer when their friends get awards.


They are happy when they hear about


a birth or a wedding.




Their hearts break when a friend dies.


They grieve at the loss of a family member,


yet they are strong when they


think there is no strength left.


They know that a hug and a kiss


can heal a broken heart.


Native Women come in all shapes, and sizes.


They'll walk, run or ride on horse back far just


to be with you, that is how much they care about you.




The heart of a Native woman is what


makes the world keep turning.


They bring joy, hope and love.


They have compassion and ideas.


They give moral support to their


family and friends.




Native Women have vital things to say


and everything to give.


HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN NATIVE WOMEN,


IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.

thank you wocus woman so much, this is an awsome piece you have! it made me cry! i am so happy and touched, we all have that one flaw. i may be young. but i have done much, an this is so true. it mainly reminded me of my grandmother, the one who i have always looked up to!

she raised four kids in the city by herself after my grandfather was murdered....the oldest was my uncle who was i think nine...my dad was only two......

i will have to write this in a card for her birthday...it is in october....

thank you so much again for sharing!
may the creator bless you in all ways sweeti!

So wonderful and soooooo true. If you wrote that, keep up the great work. If you discovered it in a book , could you give out the name? I'd love to read more.

It's a beautiful wonderful poem my friend. I've read this before on a bulletin on Myspace. Although you packaged it a bit differently. I found that it was a bit choppy to read and flowed slower than the post I read previously. I found it a bit harder to follow...

It's not like you didn't get your point across. But what do I know, I've only been writing for 17 years...


Peace

I was wondering if you'd respond publicly or not. Good for you don't take no $hit off anyone; poet or not!!!
I understand the cutting/paste task, doesn't always regurgitate pieces correctly. I have Aunties,Girlfriends,Sisters,Grand Mothers who resemble this poem.

It really is a kicsk a$$ piece. Very simple yet it gets the point across quite well! Here's a piece I wrote in 2006


Native Beauty and Strength
Native Sensuality
Native Sexuality
Native Women's Power
There's None Higher
Than A Native Woman
