You don the sleek shadow
of a woman of unquestioned rectitude,
to occlude the tempts of life
to justify the upbringing of what is
the only way of life.
Not secluded, nor a recluse,
your fortitude reflected in solid exterior,
a superiority appraised,
yet humbled by One.
For what you exude,
in bold, defined, black entirety,
is an enigma of pulchritude.
