For All the Women

Thank you
for showing me
how strong and resilient 
a woman can be,
for taking my hand
until I could see
the light of hope
and hear the whisper of faith,
thank you,
for holding me up
when I might have fallen,
for sharing your courage
when mine went missing,
thank you for believing in me
when I could not,
for showing me
being vulnerable is a strength,
thank you,
for caring,
for loving and accepting me,
for letting me know
I am seen
and that I am worthy and beautiful 
just as I am,
thank you
for leading me home to me...

With such gratitude for my mother and sisters, for my friends and mentors and role models who keep my heart inspired and my spirit strong.
