Poem: I Met A Woman

Written by empressjournee

I met a woman who I didn’t understand:

She spoke soft, loud, she spoke strong,

When she walks, her steps made many songs;

Win hearts, she won her man:

I look at that woman and I didn’t like,

Some of her verse, some of her songs;

Still she held her head high, never back down,

And when she walks, she walks with a flow,

And a command:

I look again and I began to understand

That she represents me and I represent her,

all along; and I began to ‘love that great,

Perceptive and powerful woman!

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
