Strength of a Women

In the depth of a delicate flower
There nests a power and energy
Fierce and protective animal instinct
Rushing through the life force
Strength dripping from the petals
Yet an outer displayed sham
Of understated fragile soft beauty
A cushioned heart for loved ones
To fall upon in their hour of need
But should intentions be ill
Beware the imminent danger
Lurking below the surface
Of this most complicated being
Smelling of jasmine and spice
Wielding a gut-wrenching blow
