I have a friend named Kenneth 🙂 and he requested for a poem about a strong woman in exchange for a song…its a day late from his request, but I’m a writer of my word thus this poem shall begin ….
Underneath the SURFACE
The sun rises upon us and I rise to her kiss.
She does not know there is something at miss
That something is the fact I know underneath her lips
The fact she will not tell me her heart rips.
Ripping apart due to daily life’s risks.
The sun goes up higher upon as we walk different paths.
Beneath her legs tasked for the day’s math
A pair of feet sore and still walking
Worn on shoes whose age made them talking.
Another fact she does not know that I know.
The sun sheds light on us to see the surface of earth
She sees hardships before she can enjoy mirth
I see her bravery and resilience in her tasks
She molds out works from skill yet she masks
Her true vulnerabilities because of those whom she loves
The sun sets and we meet at last
I embrace her to melt her armor fast
Life’s troubles are not worth her true loveliness
The world’s rules will not outshine her heart finest
I tell her this with my kiss
Underneath the surface of her kisses, shoes, and armor
A woman I’ll love for her fight to love me with all honor.
