II Poetry Contest: Strong (A poem for Woman)

by Charis Ayuk

I am the spring that waters,
the wind that blows,
the air that fans the hearth –
raising the fire to life

It is in me you plant
the seeds of life
that I water
It is the best of me
I bring forth
at every harvest

I am the crashing waves,
the burning sun,
the glowing moon –
that speaks to you;
telling you of my fears and frustrations
sharing my joys and sorrows…
Only if you are worthy.

I am capable –
if you give me a chance
Or if not,
I make my own

I am here to prove nothing
Yet, I prove my worth
again and again…

I am strong –
not because of you
But because
it is all I can be…
