Oh, girl. I like this a lot. This has so many things to make it appealing -- the fact that you are standing up for strong women everywhere, that you are speaking about the sisterhood that keeps all of us even stronger (we are stronger together) and the fact that there ARE many thorns out there, and we need to keep reminding ourselves that we DON'T have to be one. WE are the ones who can decide what we become. I appreciate the sentiments. Thanks for sharing and good luck in the contest!

I do believe that women have greater emotional stamina than men. Strength comes in all forms, doesn't it?

A great tribute, Don. Best wishes for the contest.

Great artwork choice. The poem has good S-word alliteration running. It flows well. Good visual imagery. The last line is concrete and strong. Thanks for sharing your poem. Good luck in the contest.

A nice tribute to women who serve in the armed forces. During WWII women saved our bacon and the government repaid them by sending them back to the kitchen when the men came back from service. I'm glad times have changed.

Donald, there are women out there that can as strong and even stronger then men. Not so much in physical strength, but in mental toughness as in giving birth the we men can never do. Or being able to stand up to adversity. If there were not strong women in this country things would be and could be much tougher. Well done and I wish you good luck in this contest my friend,,,,,,,Jim

A man is not physically fit to carry a child to birth, or to endure the trials and tribulations of enduring child birth. Thus, the woman wins out. This is very well written with a smooth flow of words, making for a very good read.

Of course women working in a man's world are not so rare any more (and nor they should be) but you still have to admire those with the gumption to go out and do it!

Sturdy roses amongst often very prickly thorns.

A clever play on words. I like writing that teaches and makes me chuckle at the same time. A very good contest entry. I hope you do well. It is hard to win contests. The writing is so arbitrary. It takes skill and some luck.

I love this phrase ' a rose among thirst', this is how expressions add beauty to the poem which add colour to your theme. Well written in so few words.
Have a nice day
