Read Poem: TO A WOMAN BARING ARMS, by Victoria Ryan-Bailey

A woman baring arms is beautiful and lovely.
Symbolic are the arms of womanhood, open and outstretched in time of need.
A woman baring arms is strong to uplift the downtrodden,
Sensitive to men, women and children equally.
A woman baring arms faithfully prays without ceasing, extends her heart most graciously.
A woman baring arms digs deeply to cultivate Earth’s nutrients,
Harvests its’ gifts to feed the hungry, she cares for mankind generously.
A woman baring arms lifts up a standard of excellence,
Holds up a light to shine brightly in darkness, spreads joy to all indiscriminately.
A woman baring arms sweetly hugs humanity instinctively,
Embraces its’ hopes and dreams completely,
Presses us to leave past fears and present dangers immediately,
Pulls us into a brave new future expediently.
A woman baring arms spreads love through her children and gently guides her man toward victory.
