A Woman Of Words

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Today I want to share a poem with you that has guided me along life's path. It was written by Faith Elizabeth Brigham, a poet that I learned about some time back. I ran into her writing because we share love for many of the same poets. (e.e. cummings, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Bob Dylan and Kris Kristofferson).  Hope you find her work as meaningful as I do!

i am a woman
of words and
though you can not
hear me speak them
you can listen to
my writer's voice
and know that
this is me speaking
that my words spring
from my heart

i am a woman
who thinks much
and cares deeply
for all mankind
one who fights
for justice and peace
who places a high value
on life itself

some have mistaken
my meekness
for weakness
for they lack
an understanding
of the components
of true strength

i have been wounded
and yet i have survived
and overcome
many obstacles 
i have
through God's grace
come a long way
from where i've been

    I personally think that us woman are getting stronger every day. We learn from our mistakes not let them rule us. If we are sick we keep going do not lay in bed moaning and groaning but do what must be done. We are woman, we are strong! Watch out world! emoticon
