    You are flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone
    You and I are intertwined, and joined as one
    Standing by your side on this journey of life
    I am committed to being a proverbs 31 wife

    But I'll not tell you the task is always trouble free
    For there are times I step where I shouldn't be
    But something always pull me back before disaster
    I remember how it was set in order by the master

    When I see you faltering I've learn to stand back
    I want to come put you back on the right track
    But something tells me we'll never grow like that
    I let you do it your way so you'll not be a pussycat

    For much as I want my love to be your sword and shield
    I understand it must be you who chooses not to yield
    I can't fight your battles and expect you to be the man
    I understand that God created me as helpmate, a woman

    Ever now and again I want to venture out of my place
    I want to reside where God has anointed as your space
    There are times that I don't want to submit to your will
    Sometimes I have had about all I can bear or take, my fill

    But then I remember that I vowed to go with you all the way
    I made so many promises on that long ago sweet precious day
    On that day, I promised to love, honor, cherish, and obey you
    So I am here to stay no matter the season we're going through

    On a daily basis, I am striving to be what God called me to be
    The friend, sister, daughter, mother and wife He put inside me
    As we continue on our course, there may be times that I still stray
    But remember God's not done with me yet so forgive me and pray

    A great woman must be behind this pen. I think you piece speaks volumes about what the example wife should be. However, don't limit your role. Sometimes we need our women to take charge and pop us upside the head now and then to keep us from falling in the wrong direction! I've truly enjoyed this and I know others will too! Nice Piece sista!

    Great Job On This Poem...

    Beautiful write asimple poet, I can absolutely relate to this heartfelt piece of being a proverbs 31 wife. Finally I ecounter a sister who shares the same sentiments as I. Breath of fresh air:sand: You can actually conduct a wife betterment course based on this script. Just reading this piece helped me escape a world where I go about and see so my fellow hardened sisters who NOT ONLY DON'T know their place, they refuse to accept it:(

    I must say THE EMISSARY, asimplepoet truly represented the rarity which still does exist. [email protected] upside the head:angel1:

    Continue to grace the family with these truths:spinstar:

    Much Respect Poet

    GURL!

    This is awesome. Just let me know when your book is available. This poem was right on target for me.:darts: Your skill with the use of rhyme rivals that of many well known published poets. When I read your work, Phylis Wheatley comes to my mind. Keep up the good work. I really love this poem. Conviction and rhyme...what a combination.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!





    asimplepoet,

    The first stanza, so to speak says it all. Everything else is gravy. With first base covered in the first frame, all else is a piece of cake. I have a story to tell about the Proverb 31 wife, if you care to listen!
