You are...

October 17, 2011
You are a woman,
No matter what you think,
That piece of you that left,
Does not define your being,

You are beautiful and strong,
And you are a survivor.
You’re an idol to all women,
That are going through these trials,

You give strength to the weak,
And hope to the hopeless,
You are a woman,
No matter what you call a dysfunction,

You are loved,
No matter what you think,
You are not a burden,
But a bracket holding together all the pieces,

When you rise in the morning,
Remember to say,
No matter what others may think,
I am A SURVIVOR proud of what has become of me.

I really like this! I enjoyed the style, as it is usually not done very well but you executed it nicely. Usually I am a fan of poems that you have to think about to find the meaning, but you made the directness work well.
