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,
Blessings!
