I have been very privileged in my life to date to be surrounded by many strong women. My grandmother endured so much in her life, her strength her caring nature and her love for God will always be how I remember her.
My Mother when I see my mom, I see my grandmother personified and as the generations of strong women in my family multiply I see strength where giving up is not an option. It’s through these strong women that I have become my own strong woman, a role model for my sister who is equally as strong she isn’t even aware of all she possesses yet, as I watch her beautifully grow to be a fantastic young woman.
My beautiful tribe of women friends I have collected through the years all with their own battles to face but their strength their character and greatness is what drew me close.
Recently helping encourage a close friend of mine going through her battlefield she inspired me to write this poem and I feel like this Poem could represent many strong women of this earth. I feel very strongly connected to all women, and my wish and prayers are that each one of you will know how amazing you are and dig deep to find your strength and unlock your full potential. You are destined for so much more than just your current circumstances you may find yourself in.
Woman of this Earth
She is brave
She is strong
She is more powerful than she will ever know
She is kind
She cares sometimes too much
She loves with all her heart
She dances to the sound of her own drum
She is stubborn, but she will listen
She is feisty
She is fierce
She is a woman of this earth not afraid to bare her soul
She is real, and she will tell it like it is
She may drink too much
She may curse
But that’s what makes her authentically her
You see she is diamond in the rough the one you may be afraid of at times
But when you dig deep and see past the facade
You will know she hates small talk but loves to talk
She will argue even when she knows she may be wrong
She is passionate
She is pure
She is not ashamed to say she doesn’t know where she is going
She doesn’t let her relationship status or indecisive career define
who she is because you see she is a woman, a woman of this earth made
for so much more
She will dance across the globe spreading joy in her footsteps
because once you see her, meet her, hear her, you will know
She is a woman of this earth destined for so much more,
SO YOU woman of this Earth embrace all your flaws because you are so
beautiful in all your imperfections, you were never made to be perfect
but to be perfectly imperfect.
I hope my post reaches someone, anyone, that needed to hear this and you can start believing how beautiful you are dressed up in all your imperfections.
Peace Love & Happiness
