It's a certain kind of grace

A quiet power I hold within
My very core, a

Whisper of elegance in the swing
Of my hips and the sound of
My every word, and breakable I
Am not, for I have a hushed strength
Nestled in my bones

The author's comments:
Just an acrostic about, well, being a woman :)

I really like it~ Reading it, I feel proud of being a woman. To me, your poem shares a likeness to Maya Angelou's work. The word choice and imagery were superb. Great job!
