We Won (Strong, Intelligent, Beautiful Women)

It was a dark and stormy night,
We were not looking for a fight but we found one,
Metaphorically and physically we were in a battle,
Some of the team wasn’t as loyal as others,
God thank you I had some true warriors on my side,
Not a man in sight when it was time to ride,
All the men in my life either ran or tried to hide,
Then later all lied and said they did their best,
Life is not a test,
You can’t pass or fail,
But if you bail out on your people in a war I personally think you failed,
God will forgive you he is full of Grace,
That night the only faces I saw were beautiful intelligent women to my rescue,
They fought harder than any man could ever fight,
Never left,
Never broke,
They stayed strong,
They stayed through the night and fought even when we were losing,
Never using life as an excuse,
I learned how to be a man in that battle,
I learned how to be a strong man by watching stronger women,
We won.

(This poem is a about my life and all the strong women that are in it. I have been blessed)

About csincere

How long have you been writing poetry? -Over 20+years. How did you first discover poetry? - I discovered poetry by accident around 8 or 9 years old. I was taking a science test and there was a question about the moon. My answer was in kind of poetic form and the teacher thought it was great. My answer was " The moon is like a flashlight and the sun turns it on". After that I kept writing poetry and started to read a lot of books. I also listen to a bunch of music, all kinds of music. Mainly R&B music. I put song lyrics in the exact same category as poetry. When did you first get anything published? -I was 12, a family member was in a contest at work. She was 16 years old working at a clothing store in the mall. It was a tshirt contest. They had to write a slogan or a poem. I wrote it she won, I got nothing except a bigger interest in poetry. I still remember some of the poem " Thank you expiration, For all your dedication, Throughout the years, You have dried tears, You've always been there, To protect and care" . that's all I remember. Why do you write? - 1. It helps me with stress. 2. I like being heard. 3. I love poetry I see some of my poetry like abstract art. I know what I'm feeling when I write them but I want the meaning to be open to interpretation. Also poetry as art to me not competition, every poet that loves poetry is great. I just love to write poetry, everything I write isn't about me personally. I just try to think of how I would feel in different situations. So even though every poem isn't about me it's still my feelings.
