A Strong Woman vs A Woman Of StrengthPoetry by Luke Easter Salem-News.com
Dedicated to Salem-News.com's Bonnie King and other women who set the bar high.
(CLEVELAND) - Many women's names are featured prominently on the list of the world's most noteworthy leaders.
Overcoming all types of adversity and hardship, these are people who held fast to their values, making the world a better place.
There are so many qualities that are connected to these leaders. Confidence, the ability to reason, diplomacy, and always the dominating factor, that is love.
Women of faith are able to persevere under dire conditions.
Conviction is another extremely strong quality that shines like a beacon in the night and lights the way for women in this world.
We must remember that as much as they create life, women are also the protectors of what is right in this world and often the first to proclaim that an accepted standard is not achieving its goal.
Women of strength are advocates for children, and equality, and justice.
Strong Woman vs A Woman Of Strength
A strong woman works out every day,
A strong woman isn't afraid of anything,
Strong women won't let anyone get the best of them,
A strong woman relies on the physical attributes making her tough,
A strong woman sometimes disguises her feelings shadowed by clouds,
A strong woman is easily impatient back and forth she will begin to pace,
A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same for tomorrow,
A strong woman walks head first with no doubt in her mind,
A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face,
A strong woman has faith that for the journey she’ll have enough,
A strong woman when uninformed thinks that she is being mistreated,
Ladies! Philippians 4: 6, start everyday with supplication & prayer,
Realize his-story is not the preverbal or only meaning of the word history,
Difference between farther & further,1 is distance,1 is to understand,

Luke Easter is a poet who writes about things that are very close to the heart of Salem-News.com. Another former U.S. Marine, Luke heals the world with an approach that reaches people on a different level, one known for centuries, yet too often forgotten in the one we live in.
We live in a world of social & economic injustice. The main reason for founding America in the first place was to relieve the oppression of the King of England. Patrick Henry said it best, “give me liberty or give me death.” And yet, all too often death seems to be the only way out. Why is there such a high suicide rate especially among teens, in the land of the free & the home of the brave? What makes headlines? Good news? Ha! More depressing stories than anything else. I feel poetry takes an edge off the hurt of bad news while still delivering it but in a, “glitzy” sort of way. Giving a different perspective. Kind of like slap in the face as opposed to a knife in the back. At least with the slap you’ll live to see another day and you will know whom it’s from. I wasn’t here for the beginning of the world but at 59, I just might be here for the end.
Even though it’s still a knife, rhyme poetry helps to dull the blade. And that’s my job. You can write to Luke Easter at: email@example.com
