Powerful and ProudI love myself. Why is this a crime?Powerful and Proud5 years ago in Literature Submissions More Like This
I love my breasts, my hips, my thighs.
I love my thoughts, feelings, intuition.
And I do not need to hear you chastise.
Just because I love me, does not
mean I need revulsion from you.
And just because I love me does not
mean I cannot love you too.
I am a woman with much love to give.
I can be intimidating, I know, but
I will NOT submit, nor surrender.
I am a weightlifter, supporting a family.
I am strong and tough, yet tender.
I am a commander, leading a company.
I am ruthless, confident, and clever.
I am an explorer sailing new waters.
I pave paths that last forever.
I am a woman

our spirits soar
rising with the voice of soul
from the depth of being
we feel our power fly high.
Taking motivated action
into our own hands
we feel our strength.
Powers of transformation
rise from within
flames of passion purify intent.
Substance grows in content
like the spine in the body
giving structure to emotion
on which to expand
the power within.

arising from the center of being
spreading through every facet of life
transmitted through action
in public strife.
Flames of passion purify intent.
We hold this power in our own hands
let it alight on our shoulders
carry it out into the world
building life's content.
A myriad of shoulders
carry bright light
into the black of night
accustomed to carry burden
they shoulder hope.
