***If you're wondering what I'm talking about, check out my call for stories of strength. Don't disregard your own story because you don't think the experiences were "bad enough" or because you don't write "good enough". We can all benefit from hearing the different ways other women show their strength. If you're wondering about whether your particular experience fits, don't. :) If you're a woman, and you've dealt with something difficult, you have a story of strength!

Rigid control was never a question, it veiled his sympathetic mask
Mistaken attitude of blurred boundaries and rumors ran on
Dewy eye patient’s, with distorted heroism and plenty of fans
Peers bestowed upon him the title,
Most compassionate surgeon, so who was this man?
Ethical rules were in place to do no harm
Therefore no one sought to sound the alarms
Except a flower lady who whispers her knowing
A daunting surgery to rid her body of malignant cells
Her heart truly filled with only love, faith and kindness
Expose an awareness of tainted laughter, polluted words, and a dreary kiss.
Now a secret, a wrong, did no nurse see, was this just another scandalous miss?
The doctor sought forgiveness, and yelled "you don’t know me at all”
And he pleaded with grief to not let him fall.
Her troubled flashbacks, a hurt full sorrow beyond belief
Broken trust she cried, with mad confusion and shouts.
Emotional scars now seeking balance and relief
But it only heals when
One learns to speak out.
What do you this of this woman's poem? What encouragement would you give about her situation?
