Passive rarely authoritative
Kind and unassuming, full-beta and never alpha
The worker bee or ant and perhaps a hunting lioness
Who plays many roles, of nurturer
Guardian and unconditional donor
A person enflamed by the conscience
Unappeased by the status quo, enraged by injustice
A crusader not for Jerusalem
But for a strain of love that sees no color or creed
A person of inner strength and outer-crumble
Shattered by rocks, mast-fallen
Hull-splintered, yet who will rise
Like a seedling, to bear one pre-destined day
The ripened fruits of labor
For the broken and needy
To handpick……….
