She is every ounce

of "strength, courage and wisdom"

in trace amounts of man and -isms

She is the effervescence of life:

destiny, faith in our fathers,

love, light, hope for tomorrows

She's the seed of prosperity

bringing forth virtuous fruit

faith, charity, resilience and truth

She is the dawn 

of every tomorrow

speaking peace to every sorrow

She is woman for God's plan

she was chosen

by His hand
