Strength

The cut of your body,

The dips in your arms,

The chisel of your face,

Your manly charm

Do not suffice as strength.

The curve of your figure,

The pull of your lips,

The shine of your eyes

Your womanly hips

Do not personify weak.

Physicality is shallow

And sex misleading,

Diluted by years of confusion and people pleasing.

We are born into a body defining a large part of our being,

Yet instead of going to the maker we idolise other

Fallen beings?

Man is unified,

Created solely to reflect God’s image

Not some being oppressed

And others oppressing

Creating a distorted, shattered image.

Your reverence of God

Your humility in Christ

Your acceptance of grace

And your spirit filled life

Epitomize strength.

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
