My Darlin’ Sister, the Ninja

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.
