Strong Woman

Your life’s work
is not
for the
faint of heart.
Do not settle
Do not run
Do not abdicate yourself or
push
a false self,
moving too quickly
Another play of
the mind.

In the depths of
your soul, quiet,
the heart
breathes
In the space between
silence and quickening
Truth.
This is where
Heart’s strength
resides.
Take your time
Learn her timbre and whisper
Let her vibrate your chest and
rattle in your bones.
Watch how she
rests.
In the space between
eternal silence and
resonant movement
there is a mystery
beyond
thought and
words
that knows you
that loves you
that lives you.
