Influential woman: Four Kimos*

Women living in a man’s world
Her legacy to the generation to come
After she is long gone

Subtle and wise she served the kingdom
Raising obedient and brave sons
Wise, gifted daughters who will rule
The world so cruel taught her
To quench her defiance
Hiding her identity, denying her gifts

For a greater fame and calling
She leaves the great hall and name
Without knowing how the world works

My first kimo try! It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Feel free to comment and make suggestions.

Until next time,
