She Stands

Our bearer, our origin.

Our carrier, our holder

Our sustenance, our rock, our block.

Our strength when we are weak.

The heat when we are cold

The food for the hungry

And the drink for the thirsty.

Warmth radiates from her flawed skin.

Her embrace encompasses us

In a circle closed stronger than crowns.

Her absence makes monsters from men

As her presence arranges the angels from the anarchists.

Her smile weeds the weakness from frightful hearts.

She stands there,

Stronger than the sun

Vaster than the ocean

Yet she is nothing more than a mother.
