Minute, unseen, unheard

“She’s just a woman,” you say

Words depicting insignificance

An underestimation of her multiple capabilities.


“Just a woman,” you say

Yet her hands cradle the future

Her very womb ensures its possibility

Intuition you call it

But her mind fathoms beyond mere sight

What a specific wonder to behold!


“Just a woman,” you say

Yet her words become a driving force

Spoken in the ears of her seed

Her seed becomes the future

A future never to be forgotten

As history is rewritten

Rewritten by the ones she has begotten

Evidences of the substance behind her words.


“Just a woman,” you say

But still, she remains,

The voice of the future

The force behind the future

The carrier of tomorrow

An embodiment of many insights

Capabilities yet untold.
