Words: Delicate Strength

Words. A simple 5 lettered word that at a glance offers no great significance; we speak them, we write them, we understand them (sometimes). They are the very essence of life, for how else could we express ourselves? The way our minds run wild with thoughts – it is, dare I say, thoughts made up of a string of words magically coiled together. May this written piece titled ‘Delicate Strength’ serve you as a reminder to persevere in the midst of chasing your dreams.

Delicate Strength


In the way that  she moves

In the way that she shapes her ‘O’s’ when she speaks

In the way that she bites her lower lip when deep in thought


She writes her story

Men secretly tremble from a distance

Women pretend they do not see her

Her strength is undeniable


The tales they tell their friends are those of her starry eyes

That je ne sais quoi

‘She is a dangerous one,’ they warn


She takes it in stride,

Thanks her lucky stars for the few, but true friends she can count in one hand

Where she goes each night is a home filled with Love

The type that is perplexing to the ordinary soul


Mystical. Other worldly kind of love.

In her work, in her play

It burns brighter and warmer


Her warrior armor.

Never yielding, never affected

For she knows hers is solid ground

And beyond the sky is within reach


Such is the tale of Woman,

One who lives her rose tinted reality

Storms. Sunshine. She weathers it all


Carry on delicate one,

Carry on one whose soul is draped in delicate strength
