Beautiful woman,

Sitting alone amidst a sea 

Of laughter and tears,

Drowning in melancholic fears.


Beautiful woman,

Whose bones house strength

and dignity in every fiber;

Whose smile shines beneath her tears.


Beautiful woman,

Finding humor in the depths of

unspeakable tragedy,

Her voice like wind chimes in a hurricane.


Beautiful woman;

Beautiful, broken woman;

Beautiful, smiling woman;

Beautiful, vivid woman.
