do not call me victim
because i am meek...
tender-hearted..slow to speak.
do not call me lowly..
when i dont ask for much..
i am not subservent...
i wont be your crutch.
call me compassion...
divine loving will..
fortitude..strength..
hope fulfilled.
call me sister,mother or friend..
even wife...
but remember all mortals
have only one life..
and tho i be mortal
tho my life is a span...
it is not finite..
i continue in man..
the earth is a footstool
and every re-birth
a continious reminder
of human worth.
