She and Her Attributes

she was the most orange form of blue

like the color of the setting sky

or the view when the sun rises just above the ocean

her dreams are afloat and alive

real and unending

longing to be satisfied

 

her hair is wavy like the stormy ocean

and as black as the night sky

but she has chosen to cover the ocean and the night sky

with fear for the Lord she always asks forgiveness from

but her thoughts are something

that cannot be covered nor concealed

for they are continous and dauntless 

 

her heart is reserved

for the love of her God

and a few human beings that

never left her prayers

two of whom she was born from

and their mothers and their fathers

and him

 

her hands are always dancing

stiching wounds, applying alcohol

drawing blood from human’s veins

pray, maintain her weight in sujood

longing to touch thing she is yet allowed to touch

she takes care of her hands

so that together they will help the needy

or even helping them now

 

her legs are among her daily prayers

to bring her to good places

even though at days she has a sick toe

her legs always seem able to let her

do things she should do,

going to school to earn the degree,

stop by the places she considered holy

to worship the Owner of all the lands and the oceans

 

she sure has some lackings, 

but she is learning to accept life

and becoming more

of what she is today
