Poem by Eden Soriano Trinidad
A WOMAN IS LIKE A SERENE RIVER
A woman can look serene and shallow;
Like water in a shoreline,
She smiles even when her heart is breaking into pieces.
Never let troubles unmask her and get seen with a broken spirit.
She never let you see a glimpse of her true feelings
and her looks could fool the smartest guy,
“Pictures never change”
But the woman in there do change;
You don’t need to grow money in the garden;
*Many at times, she denied herself of the things her eyes desired
A woman is worth far more than rubies,
She gets up before the first light smile.
Her arms are strong like her womb,
Impossible is nothing for her.
A woman could please and win the favor of a king,
And the crown as a queen;
She cannot keep silent when relief and deliverance are needed;
As she feels oblige for such a time as this
Whatever petition has found favor with her
A woman cannot bear to see disaster fall on her family.
Like Esther the Queen,
Noble and regal on her crown like royalty.
A woman doesn’t fear the storms for her roots are deeply rooted
She is only afraid of one thing, and that’s to lose her diamond ring.
*context Ecclesiastes, Esther and Proverbs 31
