She is not a lovely daisy you spot in a field –
you will not
pluck her from her roots
only to watch her wither.
She is not your cup of tea –
you cannot
sugar her up
to make her easier to swallow.
She is not a sunset caught at the perfect moment –
you will not
bask in her light
only when you consider her beautiful enough.
She is not a songbird in the trees –
you will not
dismiss her voice
when you grow weary of what she has to say.
She is a woman:
she needs no comparison to validate her worth.
She is a woman:
withstanding, strong, worthy, insightful.
