For all the women

For all the women
On this earth
For the goddess
Rising inside of you
Do not falter

Bend
But do not break
When they confine you to a word
She's pretty
She's smart
She's crazy
She's wild

You are so much more than that
You are the stars
And the moon

You are resilience
Ancient wisdom
Extraordinary love

Women, all too often, are labelled based on whether or not they behave

Well don't behave for them
Break the rules
With integrity

Smile kindly at your oppressors
Laugh with wild abandon
Let the world hear you roar

I am crazy
I am wild
I am extraordinary

I am a life giver
Earth shaker
Sky mover
I am a healer
A lover
A sister
A mother

And I will bend,
but never break.
