"The Greatest Gift"

We walk in this world with our heads held high.
Scars left on our souls,from generations gone by.
Created from the rib bone of God's first man.
Our destiny navigated with what Eve began.
Chastised and kept prisoner,our only worth as slaves.
Battered and beaten, sent to early graves.
Treated as property to be sold and traded.
Our daughters slaughtered,their lives under rated.

Kings made us their Queens,poor men made us their wives.
Outside our spirit broken,but inside our will survives.
With the pilgrims we sailed to foraged new ground.
To escape a life where our freedom was bound.
In our tepees we prayed for a way of life to stay.
But like our braves, was all taken away.
In covered wagons,across the prairie,we help blaze the trail.
Years of childbearing and hard work,still we are called frail.
We kissed our soldiers goodbye,and prayed their returning.
Picked up our babies, and kept the home fires burning.

Our blood,sweat and tears left all across this land.
Through out history our foot prints have marked the sand.
Deaf ears had little regard for our silent screams.
In a world that judged us harshly,we kept our dreams.
Chosen by God to deliver the greatest gift of all time.
From the body of a woman was born the Savior of mankind.

Our battle grounds still tainted with the smell of death.
Running from ourselves until we have no breath.
Beyond the shadows, and cold dark of night.
We rose to the challenges, and never gave up the fight.
The legacy we leave our children, is our answered prayer.
The greatest gift we can pass on, life so precious and rare.
With no guilt or shame we stand, side by side, hand in hand.
No greater, or lesser than any man, but just what God had planned.
