As always. Fridays = Poetry Friday. A chance for bloggers to come together and share their love of poetry with each other. Thank you to Catherine @ Reading to the Core for hosting our roundup today. Our theme is International Women’s Day.
As a mother of four daughters, today I celebrate my girls and compose a poem honoring who they are and speak words of anticipation and expectancy for the amazing women I know they are each destined to be.
Once silly, playful, joyful
full of wonder and questions.
Life was a playground,
a place to discover who you were.
You navigated treacherous waters
while charting your own course.
Your feet firmly planted in your
passions and beliefs
hopes and dreams.
Life is before you
with countless adventures
full of uncertainty and challenge
excitement and celebration.
Embrace every moment.
Charge forward in strength.
Lean into the power you possess
draw from the well of courage
you have stored up along the way.
Nothing is outside your reach
nothing is beyond your ability.
Let the wondering spirit of your youth
be a buoyant force of support
through every step of your journey.
