One Poem ... by Jean L. Gordon ...

Life is hard,

By the yard;

But by the inch,

Life's a cinch !

Mystique.....A Lost Art


a necessary quest
resulted when the issues
of equality for women
'midst her trauma, being ill-used

forced men from their tyranny
(though, not all were lacking grace)
the Bible, not consulted
nor God's holy face

the will of man contriving
the godless mind surmising
that freedom could be gained
when the woman's preference reigned

leader, protector, provider
no longer defined the man
his countenance lost it's strength
when the woman forced her hand

the 'pedestal' torn down
her position and esteem
the time when men chose honor
was remembered as a dream

now, we live in a society
where it's all 'in your face'
no mystique and promised intimacy
when commitment is in place

for why should men be bound
by the stringent call of marriage?
when the woman has no secret
and the public views her carriage.

Glad to offer it ... there's enough discouragement around ... hey ?

Besides ... I'm sure any writer likes to hear some kind of response from time to time ... and I have found that God will send it your way once in awhile to confirm and keep you going at it. So, please keep writing !
