I Am Woman, I Don't Roar

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers be not hindered.
I Peter3:7
-Holy Bible

I am woman, I don't roar. I am soft and sensual. I am the feminine side of his masculinity. I am delicate like a rose, as rare as a red diamond, but as practical as prose. My voice is silky enough to caress his soul yet brazen enough to strike nerves. My eyes are the portals to my soul and when I meet his gaze he is captivated by the love that shows. With my embrace his uncertainties are subdued. I am fragile, unto the weaker vessel, yet strong enough to return that which has been sown unto me. I am his wife, I am woman, I don't roar.

Takiela, you show both sides of the coin in your prose-poem. Woman is to submit,soothe and support, yet to contribute, chime in, speak up.
