“By Nature”: A Poem

By Nature

wear dresses.
clean messes.
past tests.
forgo rest.
make lists.
that’s what Women do.

plan parties.
send cards and
flowers
and children.
mend knees
and pants.
that’s what Women do.

wear heels and
heart drenched sleeves.
save days
and coupons.
bake cakes and
on rough days—mary’s jane.

silently suffer.
that’s what Women do.
pamper, bandage, rescue
for the sake of keeping
peace is what Women
fight for.

sane on odd ones.
pain through some.
times aren’t always rough
but when they are
make them better
that’s what Women do.
