She has to be completely washable,
but not plastic,

and able to run on diet coke and leftovers,
lap that can hold four children at one time,
have a kiss that can
cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart
-and she will
with only two hands.'
The angel was
astounded at the requirements.
'Only two hands!? No way!
that's just on the standard model?
That's too much wo rk for one
Wait until tomorrow to finish.'

'I am so close to finishing this creation that is
so close to my own heart.
She already heals herself when she is

'She is soft,' the Lord agreed,
'but I have also
made her tough.
You have no idea what she can endure or

'That's not a leak,'

'What's t he tear for?' the angel asked.
said, 'The tear is her way of expressing her joy,
her sorrow, her
pain, her disappointment, her love,
her loneliness, her grief
and her pride.'
The angel was impressed.
'You are a genius,

They smile when they want to

|I recently got an ebook and see that there is a movie - this poem is definitely going viral - but the author is listed as unknown. I have forwarded a copy of this page to them and also sent a note to Jessica about it. The webpage is www.TheOneFlawinWomen.com

|This poem was not entirely written by one person, the last half of it was the original poem, and it was written by my fiance Paul Jenkins years ago as something to help the women in a shelter that he was doing security services for. His poem only included the portions including the line women have strengths that amaze men and to the end where it says they forget their worth. I just wanted to set the records straight. I am shocked at how many people are using his poem and how many websites without his permission and without even listing his name as the author who wrote the poem itself.|
